About the workshop: In this workshop students use traditional and non-traditional mosaic styles and fine art techniques to understand facial structure, color, value and types of shadows to create and discover realism in mosaic art. Students will have instruction on how to develop and find their own style and learn how to see differently by developing an eye for mosaic. Students will learn to mix glass colors, values to define planes of the face and use color most effectively with professional artist tricks taught.
