Classical Mosaic Arts with Teresa Sullivan
Mosaic making is perhaps the oldest form of art having been practiced for 5000 years. Learn the basis of getting started making mosaics – the tiles (tesserae), the adhesives and the laying of the tiles. It has changed radically through the millennia and the evolution continues.
Using a combination of lecture/slideshow, drawing, examples, and hands-on practice, students will learn to execute several common types of andamento. “Andamento” means the “flow” of the tiles, or “tessera” and is a technique of making mosaics since ancient Roman and Greek times.
Students will gain understanding and proficiency by discussing and then drawing several different types of andamento, and creating a 8” x 8” paper mosaic.
Once the basic knowledge has been gained, students will start to work on their own 18”x18” mosaic. Students may either bring an image they would like to reproduce (keep it very simple) or the instructor will bring some patterns to use.
Sessions will be six consecutive Tuesdays, starting on February 8, and running through March 15. 2022 . Classes will be from 6:30 – 8:30pm. A short break will be scheduled.
Dates: 2/8/2022 to 3/15/2022
