Inner voices Mosaic

Multicolored paper
acrylic paint
mod podge/glue

Started out by having everyone paint a “canvas” – choosing a piece of cardboard and painting it with acrylics paints.

Then we asked everyone to take a variety of small 3 x 5 (ish) pieces of paper in different colors, and we asked them these questions:

We asked each individually, and asked them to write their answers on a different colored paper for each question.

After that, we asked everyone to tear up those pieces of paper, and glue them onto the piece of cardboard to make a mosaic.

Themes that came up included: processing from whence these “voices” came – who we learned what from, how hard it was to make something beautiful out of negative things, how we pass on or do not pass these things on to our children, and what pieces of mosaic we decided to glue right-side-up or upside down.
