Bring your own tile or broken ceramics pieces to include with those provided in a Southwest mosaic. Each student will create a design featuring multi-colored Mexican Talvera. Design your piece of art from the ancient petroglyphs seen in the Sonoran Desert or use the flora from the many desert blossoms as your inspiration. Use the colors of Mexico and the Southwest to add brilliance to your projects. Learn how to cut, place and secure tile pieces.
