Broken but New: Picassiette Mosaics Workshop


In this 2 1/2 day class students have the opportunity to recycle reuse and repurpose meaningful items and incorporate them into a personalized work of art. Participants will create a unique mosaic using personal objects such as broken dishes, knick-knacks, jewelry, or beads. These personalized components can be incorporated into individual mosaic work as students experiment with different textural effects while learning proper approaches to creating mosaic art. The class will participate in a fun group exercise before moving on to compose and create their own artworks. An informative discussion of adhesives and substrates for mosaic applications will be included in class discussions.

August 21 – August 23, 2020, Fri: 6:30-9pm, Sat-Sun: 9am-5pm
