Portraiture and Realism with Stained Glass Mosaics with Carol Shelkin October 15th & 16th Sat. & Sun. with an optional 3rd day October 17th Monday. 10am-5pm

In this workshop you will be guided through the process of understanding portraiture and realism in mosaic art with instruction of using curved or flat planes, shadows, value, composition and design, color choosing and understanding artists’ tricks for creating a work of art.
Each student will be able to create their own mosaic to take home using high quality stained glass. Students will be introduced to the gradations and many colors and values of hand-nipped stained glass and learning how to “paint with glass” creating a piece for interior display.
In this workshop students will use their choice of traditional and non-traditional mosaic techniques to understand contemporary mosaic in realism with lessons on structure, color, value and types of shadows.  Students will begin, but not finish a mosaic in this class, butfocus on techniques.
Mosaic is unique to all students and the goal in this workshop is to direct and assist each student to develop and to polish and find their own style.  Students will learn how to develop an eye for mosaic and create a line drawing with easy to follow steps. There will be a PowerPoint presentation and students will begin to work on a mosaic. Photographic images will be supplied, unless you are a returning student and would like to bring in your own selection.
IF YOU ARE A RETURNING STUDENT, please contact Carol for approval of your image.
Other subjects will include:  presenting your work to gallery owners, exhibitions, building a resume, pricing, photographing your mosaic art, proper adhesives, tools and materials for interior display.  Please bring questions! No question will be left unanswered.

Fee $350.00 + $65.00 materials ($100.00 for optional 3rd day)
