Realism Workshop in Stained Glass Mosaic
Saturday, April 18th and Sunday, April 19th, 2015
10am - 5pm
Class Fee: $450.00

The workshop encourages students to experience and use stained glass in a painterly fashion and understanding realism in mosaic art. Students will be introduced to the tones, gradations, many colors and values of stained glass. We will learn how to nip stained glass using wheeled nippers, cut and learn how to “paint with glass” creating a realistic mosaic in human form, flowers, still life or landscape for interior display.

In this workshop students use traditional and non-traditional mosaic andamento of their choosing and fine art techniques that will be taught to understand structure, planes in art, value and types of shadows. There will be lessons on shading, color and understanding how to apply these techniques to any mosaic style.

Mosaic is unique to all students and my goal is to help each student develop and find their own style. There will be professional artist tricks taught. There will be a PowerPoint presentation and students will begin to work on a life-like, substrate from their chosen photograph with all questions answered. Please bring questions! Photographic models will be provided.

Other subjects will include: composition, presenting artwork to gallery owners, exhibitions, building a resume, pricing, shipping, framing – or not framing, photographing your mosaic art and much more. The lessons taught and instruction given will last the student long after the class is over. Remember, no question will be left unanswered.

Level: Intermediate, Advanced or with some art background.

  • Any special tools to work with stained glass or embellishments they’d like to use.
  • Sturdy bag is needed to transport mosaic.
  • Lunch - you will be given a one hour lunch break each day.
