Roman Mosaic Art

In Art, we used part of the book ‘What Romans did for us’ to inspire our mosaic designs. We found out about the materials Romans would use and learnt new vocabulary such as a ‘chisel’ and a ‘hardie’. From our research, we realised that for every 1 square metre, Romans would use up to 10,000 small tiles. We learnt about creating a border by using 2 or 3 colours. We then used our knowledge from our History lessons to create our main designs.
