Adult Mosaic Art Classes

“When our mosaic class went virtual, I was a bit skeptical at first…I didn’t know what to expect. But wow was I pleasantly surprised! The experience is very much like being in the studio: all students get collective and individual instruction from Cheryl as well as the benefit of sharing feedback and ideas from other students. I have enjoyed learning and working on new projects and very much look forward to each class. An extra bonus of the virtual class is the convenience of sitting in my own home, with no travel time and no need to carry my project/ materials to and from the studio!”

Maria Babb

Cheryl’s online mosaic classes provide a wonderful creative experience, just like taking classes in her studio, and are lifesavers for us mosaic addicts in a time of quarantine.

Live Online Class – Create a Mosaic Mandala

‘A mandala is a complex abstract design that is usually circular in form. In fact, ‘mandala’ is a Sanskrit word that means ‘circle’. Mandalas generally have one identifiable center point, from which emanates an array of symbols, shapes and forms.

Mandalas can contain both geometric and organic forms. They can also contain recognizable images that carry meaning for the person who is creating it.

In essence, mandalas represent the connection between our inner worlds and outer reality. Designing your own mandalas can be both inspirational and therapeutic.’ (https://www.art-is-fun.com/how-to-draw-a-mandala).

Class Details:

Prior to class you will receive a variety of mandala designs to help you decide what style you would like to create. This will help us decide what supplies (glass, tile and more) you will need for the project.  Mosaic beginners are highly encouraged to pick from the projects (or something similar) provided, contact me for details.  Experienced students are welcome to send me general photos of styles you are considering, or take a more intuitive approach with personal items and supplies you have at home.

In this first of three sessions, you will learn how to seal the wood and measure the lines for the structure of the mandala. In the next two sessions, we will then learn how to cut the glass to create your design.

I will send you an email 1-2 days prior to each class, with the Zoom link and information about how to best prepare for each class.

If you continue after that, you can make a project of your choice with the wide variety of materials in the studio; tables, trays, vases, pendants, and more! For those of you with experience or interest in a specific project, we will talk about where you want to start and go from there.

Windows student beach

Dates:

  • Sat, May 16, 2020, 1-5:00
  • Wed, July 16, 2020, 5-9:00 pm
  • Wed, Aug 13, 2020, 1-5:00

Time: 4-hour class

Fee: $180, includes window or two frames (approx. 8×10 to 14×16), and all supplies

Optional: “Lighthouses, Flowers, Water and More,” $45, (combined with Windows class, $215), 2 hour class prior to the windows class if you want to cut glass and make stained glass components for your window!  Without this 2-hour class, you can make a window with the “sprinkle” technique as seen in this picture (no cut glass).  See below class for more information.

Ages: 16 and up

We will be learning to mix, pour and de-bubble resin, and the ins and outs of designing windows! Supplies are included however, feel free to bring sea glass, shells, and other items/shards to incorporate into your piece. Clear items work well so that the sun can reflect through them, if you are going to put the window in a window. If you are going to put it on a wall, any non-porous item can be used. Bring what you like and I’ll tell you what will work.
The class fee of $180 includes all materials (including the window or two prepared picture frames). You are welcome to bring your own window (no larger than approx. 36×30). Additional picture frame sized pieces can be made for $25 each.

Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather that can get messy, as the windows need to stay open for ventilation and the adhesive is sticky. So no AC or heat while making windows. Long hair needs to be in a ponytail.

The windows need to dry overnight, so you are welcome to pick up your piece during my regularly scheduled classes, Tuesday and Thursday mornings 10-12:30 or Thursdays 4:15-10 pm. Check my schedule online for Friday and Saturday class times also.

These projects are large, so class size is limited to the first 8 people who register online. Sorry I’m unable to hold spaces open without registration.

Making lighthouses, flowers, water, trees and more! 

Date:

  • Sat, May 16, 2020, 11-1:00
  • Wed, July 16, 2020, 3-5:00 pm
  • Wed, Aug 13, 2020, 11-1:00

Fee: $45, students on a 4 or 10-pack can use one of their classes, or $35 for students who register for both this class and the windows class (see combined option).

Want to learn how to cutting curves and lines?  In this class you will learn how to use mosaic tools and stained-glass tools (wheeled cutters, table straight cutter, scorer, score one cutter) to achieve the cut you desire!  Obviously, all these techniques improve with practice, but you will get a taste of what the right tool is for the right cut, and have practice with each.

This is a wonderful class for:

  • Ongoing students who want to improve their skills
  • new students that want to take a Windows! class and want a more intricate design (i.e. lighthouse, flowers, trees and more)
  • new students that want an overview of cutting skills

This class can be used in two ways.  Some students may use the full class to prepare for the windows class or a larger project (choosing glass and cutting shapes) and others may want to use the last hour to start a small mosaic piece (approx. 4×6”) with the pieces you have cut.

Join us to learn more about glass!  All levels welcome!
