Description: Learn how to create mosaics based on impressionists paintings! You will be surprised how similar impressionist paintings and mosaics can be in terms of their look and feel. We will use the shape of tessera that imitates the brush strokes. We will also talk about the colors used in impressionist paintings and how to create these color blends in mosaic art. Direction of tesserae, rhythm, and andamento will be extensively discussed and used through this workshop. Participants will be given an option to work directly on the panel or use a double reverse technique where one can work on top of the printed out sketch and later transfer the layout onto a permanent substrate. Panel size for a mosaic 12″x16″ or similar. $325, plus $60 materials fee, $385 total. Space is limited to 4 participants.
