If you love to play with tile and grout like we do, don’t miss the 16th Annual American Mosaic Summit, March 13 – 18, 2018, in Boston, Massachusetts at The Westin Boston Waterfront. Hosted by the Society of American Mosaic Artists, the American Mosaic Summit includes exciting speakers, inspiring presentations and educational workshops by top mosaic artists, networking opportunities, and a mosaic tour of Boston.
You can still sign up for the “Methods to Making It Great! Installation and Fabrication Processes and Techniques” with TSB author Bonnie Fitzgerald. Students will be provided step-by-step hands-on experience in three indirect fabrication processes: mesh method, face taping, and reverse on paper. Installation techniques, site preparation, and design modifications for large-scale work are all demonstrated or discussed. For more information or to register, CLICK HERE.
There is also still room in “Understanding and Using Color Tone” with TSB friend and book designer Carrie Fradkin. Students will create simple unattached combinations of tesserae and see how understanding tone can enhance a mosaic. Using mobile smartphones or iPads, students will learn to explore and “see” tone in tesserae, acquiring the ability to compare and make informed decisions based on color choices. This information will change how students think about the color choices they make in their work. For more information or to register, CLICK HERE.
Hope to see you in Boston in March!
