Lesson 2 - Mosaic Containers
Your art challenge this week is to make your own mosaic container similar to the one above. You will be using items from around your house to create these. The steps are outlined below:
1 Find your container
Find a container at home that you want to use for your project. It could be a used: plastic bottle, jar, box, flower pot, can
2 Make your mosaic tiles
Find cardboard packaging from around your home that you can use to cut up and make into mosaic tiles. Look for the lots of different colours and shapes (as you can see in the picture these don’t just have to be squares). They can be random shapes and can be changed to fit the pattern you are trying to achieve. Some good places to look for these are: the recycling bin, cereal boxes, leaflets.
3 Make your mosaic container
Stick your tiles onto your container using glue. If you don’t have glue at home you can use tape, nail varnish (please check this is ok before you take your sisters nail varnish! I don’t want to be responsible for World War 3 breaking out) or there are ways to make glue at home. Here is a link to some ways you can make your own glue:
If you can, take a photo of your final product and send it in.
