Tami Macala has been a SAMA member since 2009, has created a business called Mosaic Arts Online and is the current SAMA President.
She writes: Mosaic Arts Online is your source for learning from expert Mosaic artists and instructors through an online source. These online courses can be accessed anywhere at any time. Each course is designed for students to learn tips and techniques that can be easily accomplished and repeated. These online courses are broken down into sections that make it possible to work “in your own space, at your own pace” and complete projects step by step. Instructors will demonstrate and teach techniques from an over-hands perspective to provide a clear and detailed view with no distractions. Once you complete many of the techniques, you will be ready to get even more creative, and try more ambitious projects. Each purchased Mosaic Arts Online course is always available through the individual account log-in. These online courses are not available for download, so having internet access to log in is required. These courses never expire. There are over 50 courses to choose from taught by expert instructors. New courses are added regularly.
