Crunched in time but want to learn how to make a mosaic? We are happy to offer this new course that covers all the basics of mosaic art. We will provide a plaque as a substrate for your mosaic art but you are welcome to bring in an object of your own to work on. Students will learn about the different materials to use in a mosaic such as vitreous glass tiles, Mexican smalti, or Italian smalti, marble, Opus Romano tiles, adhesives, sealers, cement, thinset and grouts so they can begin their own mosaic.
In this intense One on One course you will learn how to cut and fit the mosaic tiles and how to lay them according to the design you choose. You will work on your mosaic art while concentrating on different areas so you will be able to finish it on your own, with the guidance and help of our talented instructors. All materials are provided for you to finish your project.
If you already completed the basic mosaic course with us and are thinking how to tackle a larger project you also can sign for this course, the intention of the course will be to get you past the most challenging steps in the process of this specific project and to get you well into the longest stage of the mosaic process which is the actual tesserae laying phase. This course can be anything your imagination leads you to. After the class time is finished, you are welcomed to attend our Open Studio Time. (These are the times when you can come and work on your mosaic project under our supervision in an all mosaic environment) to finish your project.
