Color Freedom Mixed Media Mosaic workshop (3-day class) with Donna Van Hooser
Date: March 24-26, 2023 - Friday, Saturday & Sunday
Skill Level: all levels welcome
Hours: 10am – 5pm with a lunch break
Materials included: All materials included
Minimum # of students: 4
Description: In this class we will select colors using greyscale values rather than traditional colors to create a still life image in mosaic. Precision cutting techniques will be covered, as well as andamento, material selection and shading.
Since this technique is more time consuming, a finished piece is not expected at the end of the three day workshop, however guidance will be given during the class for the students to be able to finish their mosaics on their own.
Students will select from one of nine images provided by the instructor for the class. These images have been chosen for ideal contrast and detail for this technique.
All materials are provided, including a 10x10 inch prepared substrate with photo and drawing, carbon paper to transfer, glue, and the loan of various tools to use during the workshop.
A variety of mosaic mediums will be provided, including stained glass, hand made ceramic tiles, unglazed porcelain tiles, filati, and additional elements in a variety of colors.
During the workshop, while there is a bit of instruction addressed to the entire class (cutting, andamento, and discussion of values/tones) I would say that 90% of the class is one-on-one instruction and assistance with andamento and glass selection.
An email will be sent close to the time of the workshop with a list of any additional items students may wish to bring. The instructor will have a limited number of tools available for students to use as well.

About the Instructor: Donna Van Hooser
I love working in mosaic, especially dealing with the challenges and limitations of the materials. The glass must be carefully chosen from a limited palette, since colors cannot be mixed, and each piece must serve as an individual brush stroke working in harmony with the surrounding pieces.
