ONLINE: Create wonderful outdoor garden art through the exploration of the art of mosaics during this five-week course. We will begin our hands-on course with a brief history of mosaic art and will explore ancient through modern mosaic installations from around the world. In week one, you will learn about designing a mosaic using shape, color and texture. You will delve into making your own mosaic in weeks two through five. We will work with a range of mosaic materials that can be used indoors and outdoors, including glass tiles, gems, multishape ceramic tiles, stones, beads and found objects. We will also discuss the best adhesives for indoor and outdoor use. Students will create and complete one 3D mosaic garden piece appropriate for outdoors: either a 3D outdoor flower sculpture or a 9-inch-tall birdhouse. | Active Skill Learning.
