PGC artists and staff spent the summer creating collaborative glass mosaics with the community, which were incorporated into the new Highland Park Super Playground.
Through a partnership with Pittsburgh Public Schools, every PPS sixth grade class is invited to come get hands-on experience with glass free-of-charge. By the end of 2022 nearly 500 sixth graders in Pittsburgh Public Schools (PPS) tried glass here at Pittsburgh Glass Center. Next year, we’re expecting 900 more students!
Mosaics as an art form have been around for thousands of years. Making a mosaic is a fun and easy at home activity. All you need are tiny parts like colorful paper, bits of ceramics, or glass; glue; and something to decorate. Anyone of any age or ability can make a mosaic and almost anything can be mosaiced. Recycle something from around the home like a yogurt cup, flower pot, empty wine bottle, pickle jar, piece of wood, or even an old bowling ball.
