This class is offered by The Art Institute, Arizona Sonora Desert Museum (ASDM)

In this ADVANCED workshop, you create a dramatic mosaic of flowers. You will learn to use the color values of your art glass to create realistic shadows and highlights. You will learn more sophisticated shape-cutting techniques and use multiple colors of grout to accentuate your mosaic. Before the first session, the instructor will send guidance on 1.) selecting and preparing your flower photo on a computer, 2.) calculating how much glass you need to bring to the first session, and 3.) what tools of your own that you’ll need when working on the mosaic at home.
Because each flower is unique, STUDENTS MUST PURCHASE and BRING THEIR OWN ART GLASS to the first session. All other materials, tools, and safety equipment are provided; however, when students work on their mosaics at home, they’ll need their own tools (glass cutter, running pliers, and wheeled nippers). No open-toed shoes or open beverage containers allowed in the classroom but bring lunch or snack to eat al fresco. Note, too, that glass cutting and nipping requires considerable hand strength. Aprons are recommended. COMPUTER SKILLS REQUIRED (yours or someone else’s) TO PREPARE THE FLOWER IMAGE.
This class consists of three 4.5-hour sessions.
Andrea Edmundson is an artist that has endured many unproductive or poorly organized art and crafts classes. She understands what students need to be motivated and how they prefer to develop their artistic skills. “Being an effective instructor doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice artistic inspiration; it just means you need to know how to reach your adult learners.”
REGISTRATION will be with the ASDM Art Institute, NOT on this website.
