Design Fundamentals with Sue Giannotti


View class option details »

Are you ready for design boot camp to help you improve the visual impact of your mosaics? Join artist Sue Giannotti for this 3-day intensive workshop and learn how to use the principles and elements of art to improve your mosaic design. 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 especially helpful for representational work, the concepts apply to all types of mosaics. Formatted 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 project concepts developed from class exercises and leave with that book, beginning supplies, and their own mosaic-ready cartoon incorporating concepts from the course. The instructor will contact registered participants with details on pre-class preparation. Class size is limited to 7 students.
