This lively workshop is designed to inspire & guide students in their pursuit of mosaic enlightenment. Through a combination of lecture and hands-on art, this interactive mosaic experience will assist the beginner mosaicist in finding their own voice, while providing the intermediate and advanced level artist with tips and techniques for escaping the black hole of creative block. The vast array of materials, forms of mosaic art and everyday personal challenges can often leave us frozen amid the tesserae. The hands-on portion of this workshop will challenge you to grow through a proven creative exercise created by the instructor that will introduce you to new possibilities and propel your work to a new level. Each student will be encouraged to share their own personal creative challenges, and through interactive discussion, we will explore the barriers that confront artists and techniques that will allow you break through walls that hold back your creativity and talent. In this one-day workshop, you will begin to identify the walls that block your creative spirit. You will experiment with materials, texture and techniques while being individually guided in honing your technical skills. Everyone will take home a project created in the workshop that will serve as an inspiration and help keep you motivated. Be prepared to be challenged, be spontaneous and have fun!
