Description: In this 3-day class, students will work on a 14” x 11” portrait (human or animal) of their choice (Gila will provide detailed instructions in advance on selecting an appropriate portrait reference). Gila will share her extensive knowledge about creating mosaic portraits, with an emphasis on picassiette: cutting, shaping & incorporating dishes and pottery into mosaics. She will demonstrate how to use hand tools to cut & shape picassiette materials, and will give tips on using these materials to add texture & interest to mosaic portraits.

Each participant will receive individual attention & guidance from Gila while working on their portrait. Students are not expected to finish their portrait in the 3-day workshop.  Gila will discuss a plan with each student on how to complete their unfinished works at home.

Substrates and a selection of crockery will be provided, but students are encouraged to bring unique finds (dishes, pottery, teacups, etc) to personalize their works. Thrift stores & yard sales finds are perfect, as are those chipped, cracked, and broken bits that you can’t bear to throw away and would love to incorporate into your art! Bringing extra to share ensures that there will be unique and surprising selections for all.

This workshop is designed to interest and challenge mosaic makers of any skill level. Participants will leave the workshop with a  good understanding of choosing a subject, transferring a design to a substrate, understanding value, laying materials of varied thicknesses, creating likeness, and much more.
