Can I explore the development of mosaics?
Can I develop different border patterns?
For the next few weeks in art, we will be exploring mosaic designs. Today I would like you to find out a little more about mosaics, explore different designs made by the Romans and have a go at thinking about repeated patterns used for borders.
Watch the 2 clips saved below to find out about some of the Roman mosaic floors that have been discovered in this country.
Next explore the pictures of the Roman mosaics that have been discovered. Click on the link below to look at these.
What can you see on these? What colours are used? Can you see any patterns that repeat especially around the edges of some of these mosaics?
