Wittman said McMillan, who has 18 years of mosaic experience, agreed to teach a two-week summer art class as long as they worked on “community and collaborative” pieces.
The students also designed their own projects and completed smaller mosaics, Wittman said. Those pieces will hang in the student art exhibit, she said. She was impressed by the art ability of the students.
“It’s pretty incredible how quickly they picked this up,” she said. “I was amazed when I came up after the second day of them working on that YMCA piece. Mosaic is not a medium that they will ever do in school. It’s just not done very much. Just the fact that they picked up making an image out of tiny fragments I was really pleased.”
