Mississhippi's Madness

A place to share my creative pursuits

Art history – using my kindergarten skills!

Today in Art history, to give us a break from the dry old data dump we got to play with mosaics.

We researched some Roman mosaics and then had to re-create one in our visual diaries using paper or coloured pencils. I chose to go with the paper option as I felt like cutting and pasting – see, I knew those kindy skills would come in handy again!

This is from a mosaic at the Villa Guilia in Rome. Not a perfect copy, but it was fun to do and a change from watching dry, info filled videos.
