Use new materials to create stunning art projects! Our line of Mosaic products will inspire your students accomplish this simply using glue and a bit of colorful imagination. Our videos below showcase some project ideas you can use in your classroom.

Have a look below at some of our mosaic products, including R15639 Spectrum Mosaics, R15651 Fabric Mosaics and R15642 Quilt Mosaics!

R15639 Spectrum Mosaics

To start, let’s have a look at some of the features of our R15639 Spectrum Mosaics. View more of our colorful mosaics here! Spectrum Mosiacs are designed to be used with the included reproducible grid illustrations. Photocopy the grids and distribute to your students. A handful of assorted Spectrum Mosaics can be used to fill in all the blank boxes with a bit of glue.

The Spectrum Mosaics are double-sided with different colors on both sides. The mosaics come in many variations of different colors, so your students can sort the colors in similar groups or according to lightness or darkness. Your students can even come up with their own names for certain colors!

Watch the video below to see the Spectrum Mosaics in action! Use contact paper or sticky laminate paper to create your own reusable mosaic placemats! We suggest making a rough drawing of the final illustration, then filling in all the areas for the colors with the assorted Spectrum Mosaics.

R15651 Fabric Mosaics

Fabric Mosaics are a great way to add a sensory experience to your class art projects. See more about Fabric Mosaics here! We’ve used a variety of patterns and colors to form our Fabric Mosaics. These mosaics can be combined by type or color to make interesting designs! Use for filling in clothing textures for All About Me illustrations; gluing on journal and schoolbook covers; decorating picture frames and more!

Quilt Mosaics

The R15642 Quilt Mosaics are paper mosaics printed with multilayered designs, just like real quilts! See more of our Quilt Mosaics here! Click on the instructions guide at the bottom of the web page to access some quilt patterns that you can use for your students’ projects.

One side of the Quilt Mosaic is printed with a pattern while the opposite side features a flat color. You can separate the Quilt Mosaic blocks into triangles (which can be combined together to form a complete square). You can use the patterned portion of the mosaics to make illustrations and fill in the spaces of your illustration with the flat colored side.

The video below shows a step-by-step design to make using the Quilt Mosaics.

You can apply this process to other designs that are viewable on the website HERE!
