This is a Mosaic that I created in my Art Ed class recently. We had to pick a theme that could be taught to an Elementary School Student, so I chose Japan, since a lot of schools here in Maryland study Japan in 1st Grade.
This is 8"x6.25" and is colored glass and grout.
I also used clear glass and put it over a drawing of a Samurai so that I could still incorporate my drawing into it. The Kanji in the top left is 侍 for "Samruai."
