Workshops for Fall 2021: SNOW FARM


ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONS IN MOSAIC ART 

September 16 - 19

Snow Farm, Williamsburg, MA

SPECIAL PROGRAM:This workshop is part of Art & Wellness: A Retreat for the Body, Mind & Soul.  Mosaic workshop takes place from 9am - 12pm and the rest of the day is filled with additional special classes, open studio, and time to rest and rejuvenate.

Following your artistic instincts, create a piece of abstract mosaic art in a supportive, creative, and relaxed environment. Using the direct method, begin with a simple line or shape inspired by broken pottery, stones, or other material. Explore how to “grow” your mosaic intuitively following andamento, or, the flow of tiles, using pattern, rhythm and movement. Feel free to bring pottery shards, stones, or other materials which may have personal significance to you. A variety of materials will also be provided. Open to both beginners and experienced mosaic artists, this workshop will offer an opportunity to let go and explore the creative mind-space and the tactile delight of working in mosaic.


Workshop Fee: $575
