Fascinated by an impressionist art? Admire Jon Sargent's watercolors or a portrait by Rembrandt? All these expressive artworks can be translated into a mosaic medium using stained glass instead of paint and cutting and nipping tools instead of brushes. In this course you will be working on a detail of your chosen painting.  You will learn  how to decipher the sequence in which the artwork was created, how to start, follow through and add finishing touches to the mosaic, and how to pick out proper colors and assign effective andamento -- the flow. To ease the process of translation we will use a double reverse method working directly over the image and then ”flipping” the artwork twice to finally place it onto a permanent substrate.  This technique makes the color and shape matching less complicated and the whole layout process faster. All the details of this process will be discussed in depth with the visual demo enhancing the learning experience. Images will be provided by the instructor or you can choose your own painting to work from. 
Notes: students will need to bring their own glass, tools (wheel cutter, pliers, glass cutter, good pair of tweezers, goggles)

The Materials Fee includes boards, glue, sticky film, and other cool things!!

Yulia will provide: comprehensive handouts with description of a double-reverse technique.
