Our Sonoran Desert is an endless visual panorama. In this class, you will create an 8"x10" mosaic of either a desert landscape or sunset, using the unique double-direct method of mosaics with photos. Mosaic artist Andrea Edmundson will teach you how to modify photos for mosaics and how to cut, nip, and shape art glass, including how to create unique "brush strokes" for natural looking mosaics. You will learn how to prepare substrates, apply tesserae, and grout and finish your pieces.

Tools, art glass, and safety equipment are provided. Note, too, that glass cutting and nipping requires considerable hand strength. Aprons are recommended.
