Have you taken "Mosaic Paintings of the Desert"? Do you feel ready to create a mosaic from one of your own nature photos? In this intermediate class, you use your own photo to create an 8x10" or 9x12" mosaic with the double-direct method and specialized glass cutting techniques. Before the first session, the instructor will send guidance on selecting and preparing your photo on the computer. Then, in the first session, you will calculate how much glass you need to acquire for your project. Because each photo is unique, STUDENTS MUST PURCHASE THEIR OWN ART GLASS. All other materials, tools, and safety equipment are provided.
No open-toed shoes or open beverage containers. Note, too, that glass cutting and nipping requires considerable hand strength. Aprons are recommended. Students may use their own photos, copyright-free ones, or get written permission to use someone else's. Some computer photo editing recommended to modify / prepare image.
