Eugene Sterud, a retired anthropologist/archaeologist with an interest in the ancient works of art called “Roman/Byzantine Mosaics,” will offer an ancient mirror mosaic class at the Newport 60+ Activity Center from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Mosaic is an art form dating back to ancient times. It involves placing small pieces of pebble, stone, shell, tile, glass or other material (called tesserae) together to form a pattern. The designs may be abstract or representational. Many methods and techniques of thousands of years ago are still used today.
