Design Fundamentals with Sue Giannotti


View class option details »

Join artist Sue Giannotti for this 3-day intensive workshop and learn how to use the principles and elements of art to make your mosaics even better. With numerous hands-on exercises, Ms. Giannotti will teach value, color and andamento, fundamental design elements and principles (e.g. focal point, repetition), material selection and planning, and how to work your cartoon and better preplan. While ideal for representational work, the concepts apply to all types of mosaics. Even if you think you cannot draw, this workshop will teach techniques to improve the flow of your work. Designed for those with little or no formal art education, participants can range from beginners to advanced mosaicists. Instead of making a mosaic during the course, students will create a hands-on book with ample projects from the exercises and leave with that book, beginning supplies, and their own mosaic-ready cartoon incorporating concepts from the course. If you are up for a design boot camp and would like to learn how to incorporating design fundamentals and preparation can increase your satisfaction of the end result, please join us. The instructor will contact registered participants with details on pre-class preparation. Class size is limited to 7 students. THIS CLASS IS SOLD OUT FOR THE SPRING SESSION.
