Subway to School, Mosaics Bring Color


Students in Bethany Majestic's art class at Commack Road used their interactive Promethean board to study the colorful mosaics that decorate New York City’s subway stations, serving as inspiration for their own school project.

Following the subway study, all of Commack Road’s students in grades 2-5 spent two weeks working hard on a schoolwide project to create a festive atmosphere in the building’s auditorium, in time for the school’s winter concerts. The young artists sketched out a variety of holiday images and then colored them using a mosaic technique, filling in each panel with small, evenly spaced paper mosaic tiles.
