The Gorgeous Mosaic Project. Coordinator's Packet & Mounting Directions.
This packet contains information and directions for those teachers or administrators coordinating and implementing the Gorgeous Mosaic Project at their elementary schools, middle schools, or high schools. This packet is to be used with the teacher's packet. The Gorgeous Mosaic is a project being carried out by the classroom art teachers of the world in which students individually draw portraits of the many different types of youngsters there are in their world on small cardboard tiles. The completed tiles are mounted on panels for exhibition. An opening section describes the three levels at which educators may be involved in the project: (1) through student participation; (2) by mounting an exhibition of the work produced at the area or school; and (3) in sending a sample of work from their area to be displayed as part of an international exhibit. Suggestions for how to organize and prepare for the project are offered with a description of the materials used. The next section gives detailed instructions on how to mount the individual tiles, suggestions of how to acknowledge student contribution, and guidelines for hanging and exhibiting the large panels of mounted tiles. A final note describes an upcoming "global" exhibit of panels of tiles planned for a site such as the United Nations in New York City and invites coordinators to send panels from their school to be included. The text is illustrated with four figures. (JB)
