Student Work: Beginners Tempered Glass

There will be lessons on shading, color, balance, composition 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 in a group setting and ONE-TO-ONE in an inspired environment to develop and find their own styles and creative 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. If you wish to create a portrait mosaic, you must submit a photograph for approval to instructor in advance so materials can be sourced. Send after registration.

Bring questions! We will have time for lots of one-to-one instruction and conversation.

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

Whether you want to try something new, JUMP-START YOUR CREATIVE SIDE or take your work to the next level, it will be a most inspiring week full of art in the heart of a most creative space!
