Introduction to Mosaic

Mosaic

October 11th, 18th, 25th • 7-9 pm

Mosaic is really a collage process using “tesserae”–small pieces of tile, stone, glass or broken pottery. In this workshop, you will learn the basics of how to plan, cut, arrange, glue and grout, to create some beautiful finished pieces, such as trays, trivets, picture frames, or art images to hang on the wall.

November 8th, 15th, 29th • 7-9 pm

“Drawing is a kind of hypnotism: one looks in such a way at the model, that he comes and takes a seat on the paper.” – Pablo Picasso

This workshop invites you to relax in to the process of drawing. We will learn how to get out of our thinking minds, and into our powers of observation, imagination, and presence. Through exercises in looking and imagining, we will discover the quiet and meditative space that mindful drawing can provide.
