Mosaics, Beginning with Open Studio (incl mat'l)   

        

This class is 5 sessions 


Mosaics Basics will cover the basic techniques needed to create art using various types of stained glass and ceramic tiles. Students will learn the safe and proper techniques for cutting tessera using wheeled nippers, running pliers, and other glass-cutting tools such as pistol grip glass cutters. Learning to use a glass grinder to shape glass will be taught as well. Students will explore different substrates such as Wedi and MDF board. Methods for this class will include demonstrations, hands-on practice, and one-on-one coaching from the instructor. To help students learn about composition, color, style, and layout of their creations, PowerPoint presentations featuring photos of other mosaics artists will be shared and discussed at each class session.
Although most basic supplies are provided for this course, students are encouraged to bring in their own bases for their art. Various bases will be discussed in class as well as where to purchase additional supplies to augment the students’ creations.
Student Goal: Complete two mosaic projects, including grouting, by the end of the course.
