Fir-Sun, June 26-28
with Mark Brody (visiting instructor from Portland, OR)
Aerial photography offers a new perspective on what we see. Objects in the distance become simplified, almost abstract.
Choose your own image of Earth from space as inspiration to step away from your usual style. Follow the ancient Byzantine style of tiny blocks of color to build line, form and landscape. The Coast, the mountains or the Plains; whether it’s from 500 feet or 500 miles, this view will open new ways to mosaic!
You’ll create and grout a mosaic sized 10” x 14” with materials suitable for indoors or outdoors. Find ideas for your design with Google "LandSat Image Gallery." Instructor will also bring the source book Overview by Benjamin Grant for more ideas.
This workshop will be taught by visiting artist/instructor Mark Brody of Portland, OR. Mark has been teaching mosaic in schools and art centers for the past 18 years, and is the author of "Mosaic Garden Projects" (Timber Press). Click here to learn more about Mark.
Class is limited to 10 students and pre-registration is required. Fees include a simple lunch provided in the studio each day, and coffee/tea/snacks.

UPDATE due to COVID-19: Below is the normal cancellation policy (which early registrants would have seen, so I'm leaving it up). During this unusual time however, I want to assure students that you will be able to cancel for a full refund if your travel is impacted by the coronavirus situation. Just let me know as soon as possible so I can communicate with the instructor, and make plans accordingly. As of this date, the workshop listed here is still planned. We will be following advice from health authorities going forward. Thank you!
Notify me at least 30 days in advance of a workshop, and receive a full refund minus $20 cancellation fee. 14-30 days in advance, receive 50% refund. This accounts for expenses and planning that has already taken place to prepare your materials. Less than 14 days notice and your fees cannot be refunded. You can transfer your registration to another person.
In the (rare) event of an emergency that requires cancellation by the instructor, students will be immediately informed and full refunds issued. I want all my students to be happy with their experience, so if you are unsatisfied with your workshop, please let me know for partial or full refund depending on specific circumstances. Thank you!
