Approx. Material Cost: Included
Experience Required: Intermediate and Advanced mosaic experience
Type of Class: Demonstration and hands-on project
Class Description: In this class we will use greyscale values rather than traditional colors to create form and
expression in creating a mosaic pet portrait. Precision cutting techniques will be covered, as
well as andamento, glass selection and shading.
Since this technique is more time consuming, a finished portrait is not expected at the end of the
three-day workshop, however, the eyes and a good portion of the face can be completed,
depending on the experience of each student. This workshop is intended for intermediate or
advanced mosaic artists and should not be used as an introduction to making mosaics.
Students can either work on a black and white photo provided by the instructor, or can provide a
PHOTO prior to the class. Photos provided by the students should be high resolution showing
good detail (not out of focus) and have fairly strong contrast between values.
The instructor will map out the design before the class if using a photo supplied by the student
prior to the class.
A phone with a camera is recommended, as we will be using this as a tool in class to see
Safety: Please wear safety glasses when cutting glass, provided if needed.
