Creating mosaics out of everyday recycled items
Workshop to be held at Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy

Old ceramic tiles and broken mirrors can become art.

Isaiah Zagar, creator of Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens mosaic art area, knows how to make this happen, and he’s ready to show you how it’s done.

Zagar will be in Troy this weekend to run a “Found Art Mosaic Mural Workshop,” sponsored by the Sanctuary For Independent Media. The two-day workshop will teach participants how to create mosaic art from recycled materials — including how to safely break tile, cut mirrors, glue and grout. Participants will use their new skills to help Zagar create mosaic art on the Sanctuary For Independent Media’s Freedom Square Art Stage.

9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. $5-$10. The Sanctuary for Independent Media, 3361 Sixth Ave., Troy. 272-2390; https://www.mediasanctuary.org
