Pelham school wanted me to run a project to make mosaics for two recessed arches on a wall in the playground. The designs are by a Year 2 boy who was the winner of the school's mosaic design competition. They were chosen for the simple but bold imagery and the way they captured children's ideas about 'City' and 'Countryside'. The design translated very well to the medium of mosaic and the looks effective from a distance.
The mosaic was made by Year 5 children, using a variety of household and mosaic tiles as well as some fun bits & pieces like beads and tiny pebbles.
