Mosaic Classes

Thursday Mornings.  9:30 AM to 12:30 PM

Starts June 6th, 2024

Instructor: Barbara Dybala

A new beginning: June 6th, on Thursday morning at 9:30AM-12:30PM, a new group of mosaic enthusiasts is forming. We will start the class with the basics of art and mosaics and grow from there.

Some call it therapy; others enjoy Hidden Mosaic’s creative environment and group interaction. Either way, we learn to see mosaic lessons based on design theory rather than personal likes, thus constructively growing self-confidence.

 In this class, each student will create their concept in mosaic. An abundant amount of glass and tiles that are free to use are at your disposal. You must supply your own tools and any extra glass or tile you wish to incorporate into your mosaic. Students will benefit from being in a professional studio where they can see large-scale mosaics under construction.

Payment is for the month.  Missed classes are non-refundable.

Guest Instructor: Shug Jones

The style of Photorealism in mosaic art can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be.  Join instructor Shug Jones in this workshop to learn how to break down figures and their surroundings to bring them to life using light, shadow, movement, gestures, and perspective.  Not only mosaic techniques but elements of art that will improve your work in any medium will be shared with you.  Learn to look critically at your artwork and find solutions.

You will employ standard glass cutting tools, diamond files, a glass grinder, and your wheeled nippers to shape your stained glass. References will be provided by the instructor for you to work from, with several students using a matching reference. 

The students will select from a assortment of photos provided by the instructor. A minimum of two to three students will be working from each image. Students will take home an 8″ x 8″ mosaic and gain an understanding of how to use perspective, values, and gesture to create realistic and lifelike figures. It is possible that some students may complete their project, but not all of them will.

STUDENTS need to bring to class:

Wheeled nippers
Glass cutter, pencil or pistol
Glass runner plier and Grozier Pliers
Weldbond Glue
Pen & Pencil
Tracing paper
Transfer paper
Sharpie (black fine)
