The Mosaicists of the Future

All children are potential mosaic artists and that is amazing


(4 min read) September is the baby safety month and on the surface of things, it might seem that we as mosaic artists and interior designers don’t have much to do with it…I am here to argue that we certainly do.

So, you know how art is mostly related to something serious and how most people who aren’t “artsy” think of it as a boring subject they should avoid? Unless a particular art piece is a product of the pop scene, it tends to be perceived as less fun and understandable. This particular notion doesn’t have to be problematic, but it also can be if you are trying to make your child fall in love with art as such. Kids don’t want to be bored, but they also don’t want to be taken lightly, so you need to walk that fine line between constructive enjoyment and careless fun.

Needless to say, mosaic art is by far one of the most engaging and “useful” art forms there is. You will notice my use of the quotation marks, simply because art doesn’t have to be useful per se, but mosaic art nonetheless is. It is beautiful, intricate and it requires years of studying in order to gain and polish the skill to do it properly. The value of the mosaic art as such is virtually undefinable, as the effort that goes into it greater than with most other art forms. Getting your child into the craft of mosaic art is one of the best things you can do for your kid. Through mosaic craftsmanship, your child will expand her/his creativity and learn all about self-discipline and observation. Not to mention that your child will gain an actual practical mastery that he can earn a living with, as well as respect and admiration of his peers. Mosaic art can truly help your child build character and establish himself as a person.

These are some challenging times for our youth. Do not let your children grow DOWN and become aimless bots of society. Give your children a proper field to build their individuality and hone some amazing skills. Learning about technology is all fun and dandy, but learning art can and should complement it making your kid a well rounded and successful individual.

    It’s so interesting to hear where the artists got their start. And so many at a young age! My boys enjoy doing mosaics with small pieces of paper and we will be doing one with the kindergarten Cub Scouts of the American Flag next week at our meeting!

    My favorite mosaic in this article has to be the flower. I love how detailed they had to get for it to look the way it does. This is such an amazing form of art.

    I wondered how this art pieces were made. I know these are made of tiles. I guess you need tons of patience cutting all the different shapes and putting them together. Wow, thumbs up for the artists.

    Mosaics of this type are the height of elegance, they always have an antique touch, almost reminiscent of Fiorucci’s fashion style… Love it!

    With the COVID situation, I did my best not to allow my kids from using gadgets, what happened is they’ve diverted their attention to art. I showed these to my kids and they’re both loving the artwork.

    I think the best way to expose young kids to mosiac is just exposing them and letting them try at an early age. It doesn’t have to be precisely mosiac art. Tearing paper into bits and then gluing them together to create a picture is the first step!
