Mosaics: Meditation & Mentoring – G200724

Workshop ID: G200724
Dates: July 12 - July 18
Price: $775.00 - $1,540.00

Come delve deeper into modern mosaics in an open studio and mentoring format. Participants may enjoy the use of a mosaic studio with the opportunity for advanced instruction and teaching. This week is geared toward those who already have basic mosaic and glass cutting skills looking for space to create on their own. Mornings will include reflections on creativity and inspiration prior to the open studio time when you may work independently. Evening sessions may begin with brief visual presentations including the history of mosaic art, samples of modern mosaics in a variety of applications and more time to work on your piece. We look forward to displaying your creations during a closing exhibit with other Festival of Arts courses to wrap up our week. There will also be demonstrations on various applications, techniques, discussions, and critiques when requested. This is an opportunity to receive input on previous work or help navigate new projects. You will be guided to adhesives that work best for different applications, how and when to grout and options for finishing and/or framing your pieces. For the last thirteen years Kathy has studied with international recognized mosaic artists during the Society of American Mosaic Artists annual summit, and more recently invited to teach her workshops as well. Recipient of the prestigious SAMA Scholarship for professional development in 2013, Kathy spent five days at the Chicago Mosaic School learning from an Italian master. A full-time mosaic artist since 2003, Kathy is eager to be your guide during this first mosaic open studio week at Ghost Ranch.
