Color Theory and Impressionism in Mosaic with Carol Shelkin NEW WORKSHOP

Workshop Description

Understanding color and light while working in an impressionistic / realistic mosaic technique is a new and first time offered workshop at Maverick Mosaic.

While understanding this mosaic technique, you'll create like Monet and achieve a more painterly impressionistic approach with your mosaic making. We will also explore color theory and the color wheel to use in our mosaic design an decomposition. This workshop will help you go beyond the basic color wheel and deepen your artistic color perception. Discover how to fully utilize hues, tints, tones, chroma, value and balance colors. Explore techniques to make colors work together to be more vibrant or subtle, bold or harmonious.

Students will begin to create a mosaic and have enough materials to take home if not finished. Upon finishing the workshop, the students will be ready to begin making educated and successful mosaic art. No questions will go unanswered…so bring questions!

We will be working in stained glass as students are to bring a good quality wheel tool.
