Collaborating Teacher: Eric Skoglund
Teaching Artists: Anne Krocak; Joshua Mercil, assistant
Art Form: Visual Arts

Project Overview
Students worked collaboratively to design and create a handmade clay tile, fused glass, mosaic wall-hanging that reflects individuals’ creativity and their views about community.

Project Highlights
“Students were positively engaged by staff visiting and artist and developed realistic expectations for their work while planning, mold-making, glazing their part of this mosaic.”
– Anne Krocak, Artist.

“Due to the population of students (EBD, DCD) an earlier start would have been easier to manage the focus of the student. We realize that this occurred due to the late funding VSA was able to procure.”  – Eric Skoglund, Teacher.

This program has been made possible in part by the Department of VSA and Accessibility at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Minnesota State Arts Board, the Minnesota Department of Education and support funds from residency sites.
