Carolina Zanelli
Modern Portraiture Workshop
The Chicago Mosaic School
February 2-5, 2018

Carolina Zanelli returns to The Chicago Mosaic School for this 5-day workshop on how to create portraiture in a modern style of mosaics. Designed for intermediate to advanced students, participants should be familiar with smalti and fairly proficient with the hammer and hardie. Students will work from a design that has been pre-selected to allow the most opportunity for learning. Ms. Zanelli is a 1994 graduate of the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli in Spilimbergo, Italy. She was an instructor at that school for 7 years and continues to teach courses both there and overseas. Her studio creates commissioned works (including one for the International Centre of Bethlehem), as well as her own works that have been featured in private and personal exhibitions throughout Italy. We are excited to have this kind and knowledgeable instructor back at CMS for the exclusive workshop.
