- Workshop Description
- Artist Carol Shelkin brings her expertise to CMS for this 3 day workshop utilizing glass to create a portrait in mosaic. Students will use traditional and non-traditional mosaic techniques to understand structure, cross-contour, highlights, color, gradation, value and types of shadows. Ms. Shelkin will instruct students how to “see” things differently using her techniques and demonstrations. Class participants will learn how to mix glass values and colors to define planes, and how to use color most effectively. The workshop will include a one hour demonstration and a life-like, 12″ x 12″ mosaic will begin from a photograph. Cost is $400 including a $50 material fee.
