CREATE YOUR OWN MOSAIC WORKSHOP!


This is only the third time offering this workshop!

…and my SEVETH year in a row being invited back to the Hacienda! I’m looking
forward to a fantastic week (OPTION TO STAY: TWO WEEKS) in an inspirational,
expansive, and tropical art-filled environment!


All levels are invited from Beginner to Advance

THE WORKSHOP ENCOURAGES YOU TO EXPERIENCE AND USE STAINED GLASS, TEMPERED GLASS, SMALTI, TILES, AIR-DRY CLAY OR ANY MATERIAL OF YOUR CHOOSING IN A REALISTIC OR ABSTRACT DESIGN.

Student Work: Tempered Glass

There will be lessons on shading, color, balance and understanding how to apply these materials and techniques to any mosaic style.

Mosaic is unique to all students and my goal is to help each student ONE-TO-ONE and in an optional collaborative environment develop and find their own techniques, styles and voice. There will be professional artist tricks taught. Other subjects will include: composition, presenting artwork to gallery owners, exhibitions, building a resume, pricing, shipping, framing – or not framing, photographing your mosaic art and much more. During this week: bring questions! We will have time for lots of one-to-one instruction.

THE LESSONS TAUGHT AND INSTRUCTION GIVEN WILL LAST THE STUDENT LONG AFTER THE CLASS IS OVER. REMEMBER, NO QUESTION WILL BE LEFT UNANSWERED.
