Mosaic

Mosaic is the art of creating images with an assemblage of small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials.

The students used colored cardboard which was cut  into small pieces.

First they saw many pictures of mosaic art. Then they chose a theme and they started with the help and the guidance  of the  teacher of art .

Greece – Loudias River

Although Greece is mainly a mountainous country, our town (Giannitsa , population 35.000) is situated in the middle of its biggest plain. (The plain of central Macedonia).

We are surrounded  by cotton fields and peach trees, which are irrigated by the river Loudias.

Loudias isn’t very big (Length:32km, Width: 60m and Depth: about 5m) but it’s very important to our local economy.

Loudias’ water level  is the same  as that of the sea and it remains calm all year long. This makes the river ideal for sports like canoe-kayak or skiffing. There is a rowing club at the river banks. During the 2004 Olympic Games many athletes used to train in our river.

Students from Year two – class 3, studied the river with their teacher. They also drew some beautiful pictures. The best chosen were turned into school pin badges.
