Class Description

This 2-day workshop is for artists who want to explore a variety of mosaic techniques to create a representational landscape utilizing different traditional materials, e.g. glass, stone, shells, and metal. Beginning with a short presentation and exercise to illustrate general principles, the discussion considers perspective, foreground, background, and light source highlights and shadows. The beauty of this workshop is that the artist gets to surround themselves and then get to play with a variety of tesserae to complete their mosaic. The workshop emphasizes a hands-on exploration of mosaics techniques. This allows the artist to discover different textures, color combinations, ways to transition, and form relationships with mixed materials. Throughout the workshop, individual attention and tips are provided to help with the technical aspects of mosaics and to guide the successful completion of each project.

Required Supplies

There is an additional $50 material fee. Students are recommended to supply their own tools, if available. TAC has a limited number of tool sets that can be borrowed, and priority will be given to novice students.
