Be a part of this special workshop to continue the beautiful exterior artwork at Bethany Arts Community.

The workshop includes a complete overview of materials, techniques, and hands-on experience that will guide students through each stage of the process- from design, creation, and installation of a mosaic mural onto an exterior brick wall. Subjects discussed include sustainability, design, substrate and material selection and preparation, mosaic creation, installation, and documentation.

This is a must-do workshop for students wanting to dive into larger work and who want to learn best practices for taking on big projects.

No prerequisite. All materials included.

About The Instructors
Casey Van Loon is a mosaic and glass artist who creates works of various sizes, from large windows or wall hangings to intricate mosaic jewelry. As an instructor at The Chicago Mosaic School since 2012, Casey teaches a range of courses for all levels, including the After School Matters Program. Previously working as a stained glass artist for over 20 years her work includes numerous historical and original projects including the restoration of the Tiffany Dome at the Chicago Cultural Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral [New York], and the world’s largest exterior glass mosaic at Tousaint Village [San Diego]. Van Loon’s original work has been featured in numerous galleries nationwide, most recently and the Gallery of Contemporary Mosaics in Chicago and the Museum of Biblical Arts [Dallas].

Etty Hasak
Born in Tel Aviv, Israel, Etty completed her army service in the Israeli Defense Force and shortly after enrolled in the College of the Arts in Ramat Hasharon, Israel, graduating in 1986. Following graduation, Etty went on to manage an Art gallery for two years while also working in picture framing.

In 1989 Etty moved with her family to Los Angeles where she worked and then managed a frame store that specialized in high end custom made gold leafed frames. She continued to build her career in picture framing here in Chicago and opened a framing/ art studio business in Israel in 1995. It was in 1998 when she took her first clay class, which would become a huge part of her artist practice.

Etty was first introduced to mosaic arts in 2006.  Falling in love with this medium, her work evolved as she gained more knowledge and experience merging ceramics and mosaic studies– resulting in numerous commissioned works throughout Chicago. Since finding the Chicago Mosaic School, Etty has participated in numerous shows and exhibitions in GOCM, the Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas, San Francisco, and most recently, the Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA).
