Year 8 Art Option - Mosaic wall

Year 8 Art Option are starting a mammoth task! We have decided to brighten up the seating area outside DT by creating a big mosaic of a tree. We started by looking at the wall the mosaic will be on, with help from Mr Oetel we measured the wall and worked out the area. Pupils have created a range of design ideas for the mosaic. Pupils then all wrote off to various tiling companies for help and have been really successful in their requests for materials!
As well as all the really generous donations of tiles from parents and carers (that we are SO grateful for) pupils have also secured donations from Wright Tile in Leighton Buzzard and Homebase in Leighton Buzzard. The groups greatest success has been to secure £1500 worth of tiling supplies from Topps Tiles!
I will continue to update this page to show our progress. If any parents or carers have any experience with tiling mosaics and you would like to help make a difference to our school environment, we would welcome your support!
