Here are the two sample mosaics we made for faith formation class. We told the kids that they can work on theirs for the next four weeks, until Easter. When they finish, they will be displayed in the church. They are coming out good! Each one is unique. To prepare for the mosaic project, we studied an print of St. Paul's Joy, a 20th Century stained glass window by Waclaw Taranczewski. We also discussed the selection process for the next Pope, looked at a map of Italy and located Rome, read about the first Pope, Peter in the Action Bible, and viewed an art print of Saint Peter (Lucas Cranach, c. 1510).
These foam squares took hours to cut up!
