Modern Expression with Maestro Verdiano Marzi
For the 7th consecutive year, we welcomes back CMS mentor Maestro Verdiano Marzi for exclusive workshop opportunities in 2017. Marzi is one of the world’s most highly regarded teaching artists in the contemporary mosaic art world. This workshop is a transformative experience for students at all levels. No matter what your level of is with mosaics, you will not leave unchanged by this experience. The workshop (5 days) is for students who want to reach new ground in their art. Participants can explore the beauty of mosaic technique through demonstrations, material experimentation and presentations with a true master artist. Students will explore why elements, composition and rhythm are meaningful, and will learn how to use them in their mosaic works. Students will gain new perspectives about their work and practice by drawing relationships between materials, shape and content. CMS provides students with a mixture of both stone and glass for a wide range of design possibilities. Hammer and hardie cutting techniques will be used for both stone and glass and the cut tesserae will be set into mortar directly. The workshops include complete access to the CMS studio, use of tools and a comprehensive selection of materials (including our huge inventory of smalti). These workshops are open to all students with a basic comfort with cutting using the hammer and hardie.
