Artist in Residency
ACHF Arts Access ACHF Arts Education
Students will learn the process of designing and installing a large group mosaic based on mathematical principles used in historic geometric tile. The Mosaic will be installed on an existing cement pillar located at the entrance to the school. We will know we have been successful if we are able to complete the installation.We will administer a pre and post-test developed by the Art teachers, Math teachers and Melissa Gohman to evaluate student understanding of the geometric grids, color theory, mosaic process and understanding of public art. Students will create a video journal of the project from start to finish to document the project.
Students learned the process of group planning, refection, and revision needed to execute a large collaborative project. These skills transfer to many "real-world" scenarios. The result of this group project is a large public art installation that students can take pride in making. It provides a sense of investment and ownership of the school, as this installation is permanent. Community members have noticed and commented positively about the project. The building is used for many different community events
