Course Description

ONLINE: This hands-on art course will teach the skills needed to complete a beautiful piece of mosaic art using the most straightforward laying technique in mosaics, the direct method. The process involves building a mosaic directly on a rectangular finished piece of wood. Students will choose from a selection of flower and fruit images provided by the instructor. The instructor will then provide each student with an outlined drawn pattern of their chosen image to mosaic upon. Tools, mosaic material options, adhesives and basic cutting techniques will be taught during this course. Students will be able to view a step-by-step process for their chosen design. Classes will be recorded so that students can go back to review the steps each week. Many finished examples will be shown during class. Students will have a completed piece of mosaic art by the last class. This course is for students at all levels, with no experience necessary. | Active Skill Learning.
