Feeling creative? Love color? This class is a fun variation on traditional mosaics – using acrylic paints with modeling paste and scrap art glass scrap – to create aN 11X14" representational mosaic. NO GROUTING! True beginners can use a pattern provided by the instructor; more confident participants can modify a pattern or use their own photo or design.
You learn to:
- Use mosaic terminology and glass shaping techniques.
- Design an acrylic glass painting, primarily using scrap glass.
- Apply glass tesserae to a pattern, using acrylic colored modeling paste with brushes and palette knives.
Registration includes instruction, use of tools, a substrate, a selection of art glass scraps, and other materials. Students may need to bring some of their own glass scraps, depending on their photo. However, the instructor will send a detailed email the week before class. And remember, the class is about learning the technique, NOT about creating a Monet!
NOTE: Mosaic art requires considerable hand strength. Aprons highly recommended. No open shoes, food or beverage containers…Glass can fly everywhere!
Five (5) sessions; total class time 15 hours.
