Adult Mosaic Art Classes

“Time spent at Cheryl Cohen Mosaics is when I can be creative and reflective at the same time.  I am a process-oriented person anyway, so spending time creating a piece of mosaics helps me slow down, enjoy the company of others, and totally impress myself on what I end up with!

Cheryl feels like a kindred spirit of mine.  In an oh-so-sweet way, she guides and challenges my thinking and design.  A few of us have been coming to Cheryl’s studio for years, but she is happy to have one-timers too (betcha you’ll want to come back though).  Cheryl’s pricing structure allows me to pay for a “ten-pack” up front, which not only keeps my coming back, but allows flexibility to come either days or evenings, or miss a few weeks when my work gets demanding.”

You are welcome to come each week at the same time, or mix it up and come on different days as all the classes are open and people are working on projects of their choice. Anyone over the age of 8 is welcome, and you will learn to cut the glass! Beginners usually start with coasters, light switch covers or pendants. Give it a try!

4 Pack: – $145 Classes do not have to be consecutive. Beginners start with making a coaster, light switch cover or pendant. The next project is often plate smashing (yes, smashing plates with a hammer) and decorating a picture frame with plate shards. Cheryl will show you how to use the tools to shape the plate shards or glass. 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. You will be inspired by the other student’s creations and all of Cheryl’s art in the room. Just be sure to register (online) to make sure there is a spot available for you in class!

10 Family Pack:  $325 You can share these 10 art classes with children, grandchildren, grandparents, husbands, sisters-in-law you name it! But most of the time people buy the 10 pack for themselves and challenge themselves to make increasingly complex mosaics! Mosaic art classes do not have to be consecutive.

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!
