Welcome to your Mosaic assignment....

Dear Mythology Kids,

If you missed class, we completed the following:

1. I introduced the mosaic assignment to each class today.

What is a mosaic? A piece of artwork that is comprised of many different pieces. Please see the examples of mosaics below.

Why were they so important to the ancient Greeks? They took the subjects from their mythology and literally cemented them into mosaic artwork.

I look forward to seeing the subjects you have chosen for your mosaics. For those of you that missed class on today (December 8th), we completed the following:

1. Introduction of your "Mosaic Assignment"

•Your mosaic must be at least 11 x 17 in size

•The subject may be any aspect associated with our study of Classical Mythology (gods, lesser gods, heroes, monsters, and specific myths and their characters)

•You need to be passionate about your selection.

•If you elect to draw the subject, extra-credit will be given

•If your mosaic is larger than the required size, extra-credit will be given

YOUR SUBJECT MUST BE TRACED BY MONDAY, DECEMBER 12th. WHY? Well, I have to return the projectors to the library on Friday afternoon. PLEASE! PLEASE! Have your mosaic traced for Monday!

ANY and ALL supplies you want to use for the mosaic need to be with you on Monday!
