OFF the WALL - Asymmetrical Faces Mixed Media Mosaic workshop (3-day class) withJoan Schwartz

Date: March 22-24, 2024 - Friday, Saturday & Sunday
Skill Level: all levels welcome  
Hours: 10am – 5pm with a lunch break
Materials included: All materials included ($30 value)
Minimum # of students: 6

Description: In this abstract workshop Joan will share her methods of developing a 10”x12” 2-D relief face by letting the chosen materials speak for themselves. She gathers a mixture of different sizes and types of materials, such as stained and Smalti glass, metal and glass beads, buttons, ceramic, wood and any other accessories that speak to her. By the process of elimination and rearranging these tessera like puzzle pieces, these tricks aide in her development of a color palette and some of the design elements from which to assemble a ‘one of kind face.’



About the Instructor: 
Joan Schwartz

www.joanschwartz.art

I’ve made art as long as I can remember, even while working as a pediatric nurse and raising my 3 children.

Several years after I started working in mosaics, I realized it had become a seriously important part of my life. It’s not just the end product but the process itself. It is my mental vacation, a journey in which I get lost in an array of colors, patterns and materials… a viable antidote to stress. It is truly a drug to which I now know I am addicted. When I can’t get down to my studio, I feel out of sync, irritable, and just plain unhappy!

Mosaics has offered me opportunities to travel all over the world, expanding my education, by taking multiple workshops with the most notable instructors, and making life-long, like-minded friends.

A few notable things worth mentioning:  

  • I have works abroad as well as in the US.
  • I’ve participated in many group projects, and charitable works.
  • I have been juried into Art Prize twice
  • I have been juried into MAI (Mosaic Arts International) 4 times.
  • * With tons of help, in 2017 I hosted the SAMA conference in Detroit, MI.
  • * I recently have been chosen, along with Anabella Wewer, for a 2020 residency program at the Olive Stack Gallery, in Listowel, Ireland.

I’m looking forward to sharing my passion with you and all I have learned over the years.
