This Mosaic class is something new at the Art Center this year. This class will teach a variety of mosaic techniques including material selection, design, scoring stained glass and using tile nippers to create the visual elements of the mosaic, setting the pieces with mortar and finally grouting the piece utilizing a traditional mortar and grout process. At the end of the class, the student gets to take home a completed creative artistic birdbath. The Instructor will provide plenty of glass to complete the project and students are encouraged to bring china, pottery dishes or tiles (already broken) for possible inclusion in their bird bath. The class will be held in two sessions to allow sufficient time for the adhesive to set before grouting. Be sure to sign up early, due to limited seating. Students supply list include safety glasses, pencil, black sharpie, work gloved and wear clothes that can get dirty.
Class is Closed-Full
