want to make all kinds of stuff for certain lucky people in your life. In
this class, you will learn all of the basics (about surfaces, materials,
tools, adhesives, techniques, grout, etc.) for making mosaics. This is a
great class for beginners!

It’s time to “unleash” yourself! Let’s explore all the whimsy and humor that animals provide and create some fabulous mosaics.

Caution: Animal sounds may be present during the class!

This class is designed for those that have already taken a basic mosaic class and would like to improve their mosaic techniques and skills. Come to class with a completed mosaic project. The instructors will give you feedback on your mosaic piece and help you define areas for improvement. You will create a project of your choice working intensively on your specific goals. This class is all hands on with one-on-one teaching.
We will focus on design, flow, movement, color and anything else you have questions about.
