VIRTUAL: Mosaic ACT: Abstract, Color & Texture
This workshop is full – Add your name to the waitlist. Explore abstract composition choosing from some images provided, then deconstructing it into something new. You will create with materials in a single hue consisting of miscellaneous glass and other random objects.
The workshop will be taught online with Zoom so good internet access is a must! Each session will include a brief meditation on creativity and inspiration.
This workshop should particularly benefit those who want to explore a limited color palette and work in the abstract while responding to a variety of materials to give voice and texture to your design. A variety of materials will be provided for your monochromatic mosaic, adding texture, depth and dimension. Previous mosaic experience is helpful but not necessary.
Your registration includes a mosaic kit which will be mailed to you (tools not included). Students with some basic mosaic experience may learn further mosaic fundamentals and how to apply those techniques to their art. Please see below for items participants should have on hand.
NOTE: The deadline for registration is March 8th to allow for mailing your mosaic kit (the tuition covers a materials kit that will be mailed to you before the start of the course). Mosaic kit shipped within the U.S. only.
Instructor Kathy Thaden’s award-winning mosaics have been exhibited across North America. Kathy describes working in mosaic as “a transforming process. The pieces are broken, shaped, fit together and made whole again – finding beauty in the brokenness.”
