About the event
Not Your Grandmother's Mosaics! This class will help expand your mixed-media repetoire using layered collage images, stained glass, mosaic tiles, artist created ceramic pieces, mirror fragments, gemstones, beads, found objects etc. to construct a painterly and expressive art piece with personalized meaning.
On Day 1, we will explore the history of mosaic imagery, and Anna will be on hand to coach participants on developing suitable designs, as well as ways to best translate them into mosaic format, learning to arrange and glue pieces.
Day 2 will allow for us to finish cutting and gluing pieces, and will include a demonstration of choices in how to grout your pieces so they will be long-lasting.
Workshop participants will come away with a completed 12 x 12" panel and your choice of grout medium, with the option to purchase a set of mosaic tools for you to continue your creative exploration at home, or at the Studio.
About the Artist: Anna Meyrick Kirkpatrick was born and raised in Oregon, and has been working with mixed media and teaching her personal style of mosaics for many years, most recently at Sitka Center for Art and Ecology on the Oregon Coast. She loves all the elements of our natural regional landscape, symbols, mythology, magic and mystery, which shine through in her work.
