Lizz Van Saun

I work primarily as a Teaching Artist in Residence in schools with grades K- 12 where I facilitate the creation of mosaics using mostly non-traditional materials of recycled stained glass, mirror, glass tile and "gems." Teaching and encouraging community building through mosaic making with diverse populations is my passion and my joy. Mosaic as a metaphor for living; every piece matters, every person matters! Ask me about integrating my program into your school curriculum.
