ROYERSFORD —Brooke Elementary School dedicated a handmade ceramic mosaic that fourth-grade art students created using creativity and imagination on Tuesday. The students worked with their art teacher, Susan Di Guiseppe, to design individual colored clay tiles.

Di Guiseppe’s art class worked with professional Philadelphia-based mosaic artist Jessica Gorlin Liddell on the project, which reflects students’ design knowledge of pond life, insect worlds and flora, as seen within their own lives and surrounding the school’s courtyard pond.
