Palmetto Elementary in West Palm Beach, FL received an arts education grant. Over the course of 3 years, I worked with the principal, the teachers and the students to develop a series of arts integration activities at the school, one facet of which was to create a series of mosaics celebrating the arts and academics to adorn the school.
History and Theater
The theater figure contains both tiles which celebrate Florida's produce, and a timeline of Florida History.
Musician and Biology
The trumpet player's tiles show the circulatory system, and also reference other biological terms. His music is DNA.
The dancer's tiles show the solar system
Sisyphus and Physics
The tiles within this mosaic celebrate Simple Machines
