There are classes for all levels, and they are arranged so novices can take classes in the spring and be ready for the more intermediate ones later — a great holiday gift for the artist in the family. Dianne Sonnenberg returns and offers a threehour Mini Master Mosaic Class in Outdoor Mosaic Installation on Friday, April 17, and for the first time, there will be an Intro to Smalti on April 18-19. Learn how to work with this exquisite material. Discover the different types of smalti, cutting methods and techniques, Andamento, adhesives, and more with a combination of slide show presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on individual instruction. Gila Rendlen returns June 12-14, with her popular three-day Picassiette Portraiture. Rendlen will share her extensive knowledge about creating mosaic portraits (human or animal, your choice), with an emphasis on PIcassiette (broken china). Cutting, shaping, and incorporating dishes and pottery into mosaics taught. Mosaics can be animals, people or landscapes. Mary Driver will be here for the first time for a three-day creative journey, Getting the Light Right. In this intermediate class, Driver will help you turn a ho-hum mosaic into a spectacular one with tips to transform your mosaic landscapes, still lifes or portraits into art that will look like a photo or painting. Linda Pannullo offers her FUNctional classes, Lazy Susan class, March 7-8, Picassiette Potheads/planters workshop, May 2-3. Great classes for beginners to learn the basics and create a FUNctional piece of art.
