The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) is a world-renowned museum in Richmond, Virginia. VMFA hosts a number of summer art camps for children, and I was honored to teach a camp of 10-12 year olds for a week.

Together, we learned about the history of mosaics, learned techniques and the math/science of planning a mosaic project, drew inspiration from pieces within the VMFA galleries and ultimately worked on a group project as a class over a number of days.

This Lego mosaic was inspired by an ancient Greek coin discovered to be from the 5th century BC. The shading and gold tones made this a perfect model for a Lego mosaic, which was created first by working on a grayscale design, then by overlaying transparent yellow LEGO parts on top.
