Beautiful broken pieces transformed from trash to treasure with reclaimed wood and CD's!!

Mosaic art dates back at least 4000 years and for good reason! This capstone project was a labor of love for our EMU OT intern Claire Huddas. It took many many many trials to get to this spectacular finish but I think she would agree it was worth the wait!! Claire used re-claimed cabinet doors and used CD’s to create a project for all students on our caseload from elementary through high school. By nature, mosaic creation is a highly gradable task as clients choose patterns that provide that just right challenge and cut the discs into manageable fragments. This is going to be an activity that students and the community will cherish for years to come. Thank you Claire!! Interested in trying this project in your classroom or home? Check out the link to Claire’s protocol below to get started!! And feel free to contact us with any questions or to share a picture of your creation!
