Elizabeth Rockstad Teaching Artist




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.

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.   studio413@ymail.com
