Imagine you are part of an archeology team, which discovers a 5,000-year-old city. As the excavation continues, a sizable number of mosaic faces emerge. Time indicates that much more will be uncovered. Then a phenomenon is discovered. As the work unfolds the team is stunned to see the uncovered faces were the exact double of themselves except these faces were of god, goddess, animals, slaves and children. In this mosaic class, imaginations go wild in the thought of what type of inner-self do you symbolize today. For me, I love to grow flowers, thus, I choose, “Goddess of the Garden”. Who would your ancient self-be? In this advanced mosaic challenge, you will be working in a double reverse mosaic method. You will be hand cutting stone and pottery. Using a minimum of colors you will fine-tune your color theory knowledge. Great emphasis is placed on mapping andamento flow. Bring your mosaic tools, but all other supplies are furnished. You may pick up the basic stone package ahead of time to get a head start on the base cutting. You must send a close up photo of you face one week prior to the instructor for approval and enlargement. Call in advance if you wish to stay in the Dragonfly Wing of the Studio. There are six beds available.
