In a 3-hour Mosaic Basics Workshop, I begin with giving you a brief tour of The Chicago Mosaic School and the Gallery of Contemporary Mosaics. You will then be shown a variety of examples of both ancient and contemporary mosaics, as well as receive an introduction to mosaic tools, techniques, and materials. During the three hours, you will create your own personalized 4” x 4” mosaic to take home and show off! You will leave with new knowledge, skills and an appreciation for this ancient art form! Feel free to bring your own food and beverages!
I founded The Chicago Mosaic School (CMS) in early 2005 , and it quickly became the premier center of education for Mosaic Arts in the United States. Before shifting focus toward mosaics in my practice, I had a long career as a working artist in painting and ceramics, earning my BFA from the Boston Museum School and MFA from the School of the Art Institute of the Chicago. In 1993, I took an interest in mosaics and found there were few resources in the United States for artists interested in a serious study of the medium. After several years of independent research and practice, I sought formal instruction in Italy. I connected with established and trained mosaic artists from around the world and invited them to come to Chicago to educate a new generation of students in the United States.
