Tel: 01799 501137

Based in: Essex, East Anglia

Anne Cardwell is a graphic designer turned mosaic artist and creates mosaic art in schools and groups as well as teaching mosaic art to adults. She believes artists in schools should merely be faciliatators, allowing childrens ideas to come alive and that adult help should be applied with a light touch.

Ater discussing a brief with a school and explaining the procedure, Anne will request a set of simple drawings from the children which will be used to create a design. Usually, but not always, projects can be completed in one day, working in groups of about 10 children at a time.

“Children love mosaic art, they are thrilled to produce something so durable and always embrace the medium enthusiastically and creatively, one child told me it was ‘as good as Christmas day’!”

Anne is a member of BAMM and created the Mega Mosaic Makers competition in 2008 to promote the role of mosaic art and artist in schools.
