The 7th graders have created beautiful ceramic tiles.  Inspired by the Islamic geometric designs, as well as by Moroccan and Mexican traditions, the students created a symmetrical design.  The design was transferred onto 4 tiles, and then glazed.  In Islamic culture, the color blue is the color of protection, and many students incorporated blue in some way.
