Color Theory and Impressionism in Mosaic Art Using Stained Glass with Carol Shelkin
Session 11: Wednesday, April 24, 2019, 8:00am – 5:00pm
Price: $395 (Includes $70 Materials Fee)
While learning this mosaic technique, you’ll create works in a style similar to Monet and achieve a more painterly Impressionistic approach with your mosaic making. We will also explore color theory and the color wheel, which will be used in your mosaic design and composition. This workshop will help students go beyond the basic color wheel and deepen your artistic color perception. Discover how to fully utilize hues, tints, tones, chroma, value, and balance colors. We will explore techniques to make colors work together to be more vibrant or subtle, bold or harmonious. You will be introduced to how color makes us feel and how to use color to your benefit.
Students will begin by creating a mosaic on a 10″ x10″ (approximately) board and have enough materials to take home if not finished. Upon finishing the workshop, the students will be ready to begin making educated and successful mosaic art. No questions will go unanswered…so bring questions!
