Elizabeth is from Ada, MN.
One of the greatest joys in my life is to be able to share what I do with others. As a teaching artist, I feel very lucky to be able to spend time in schools and communities, working with students, teachers and community members making their visions come to life through mosaics.
A Community Mosaic Project encourages any club, organization or business to work together. This is a fun and effective way to introduce community building to a group of people of any age or ability.
With School Mosaic Projects, students design mosaics and assemble them as well. School mosaics are typically placed on a permanent surface, such as windows or panels. Most residencies are 4-5 days of in-school time, however, the whole school can be involved, with the youngest grades laying a few tiles, and older students (grades 3 and up) using the mosaic wheel nippers. This is a wonderful project for adult volunteers and parent participation. Being a licensed K-12 Art teacher has given me the opportunity to connect my art form with core standards for the arts. I can address these standards directly to meet teacher’s needs in the classroom across curriculum.
If you have specific questions, contact me. I work predominantly in my home state of Minnesota, but am also happy to travel. firstname.lastname@example.org
