Art and the Environment: Laurel True Mosaics
Art and the Environment is the focus of this lesson. Students will learn about Laurel True, an artist, educator and community builder based in New Orleans. She has been creating architectural, public and community-based mosaic art for almost 25 years. Working with ceramic tile, glass, mirror and recycled building materials such as brick, concrete and asphalt, she designs and creates murals and sculptural forms for public, commercial and residential settings, and as street art around the globe. In the style of True, students will use recycled materials to make mosaic art.
