Carol Shelkin Realism with Stained Glass mosaics Tues. July 8th & Wed. July 9th 10a-5p both days

This is a hands-on workshop using modern, mosaic techniques to understand design, composition and color theory in realism including; structure, cross contour, highlights,gradation, value and types of shadows using high quality Stained Glass.

You will begin a mosaic from a photographic model that will be offered. You will use stained glass in non-traditional mosaic techniques and andamenti to understand how to “see” things differently and create a line drawing for creating mosaic art. Ability to draw is not necessary to take this workshop.

Students learn how to mix Stained Glass values and colors to define planes and find shadows, and how to use color most effectively with artist tricks that are taught.  Thereare demonstrations, one-to-one time with the instructor and a Powerpoint Presentation and lecture. We also discuss a variety of subjects; gallery shows, materials and tools for indoor and outdoor creations, framing or not framing, shipping artwork and insights on applying to and getting into juried art shows and much more.

Students who have studied with Carol previously may bring their own photographic model with advanced approval. No question will go unanswered.

Fee $400  (materials fee $65.00)
