    Mosaic 101

    Once upon a time, a man broke a bunch of vases and thought, “I can still work with that.” And thus mosaics were born. Explore the wide world of mosaics, from classical floors to funky wall hangings. This class is the perfect blend of art history and hands-on crafting. You’ll briefly learn about the history of mosaic art, see classical and contemporary examples, and get a hands-on demonstration of different approaches to design. You will also learn to work with the materials and create your very own 8’ x 8’ mosaic to take home and show off to all your friends. And don’t worry if you don’t remember everything from class. You will leave with handouts of terminology, tips, and resources for making mosaics at home.
