Monochromatic Mosaics with Toyoharu Kii
CMS welcomes back renowned Japanese Maestro Toyoharu Kii to The Chicago Mosaic School. In this exclusive 5 day workshop, Kii will teach students “How do you express the feeling of something with one color? To make a monochromatic mosaic, one must think about what is the originality of mosaic.” A limited palette can provide the artist ample opportunities to discover movement and expression, texture and content. Kii will lead students first by creating designs using Chinese ink and Japanese paper. After the design is completed , participants will cover the design with a type of plastic sheet and create the mosaic directly on that sheet using cement mortar. Students will have access to the vast CMS smalti inventory to create their workshop piece. This is a rare opportunity to work with this contemporary master, space is limited. As with almost all CMS workshops, cost includes all materials, use of tools, and any handouts or supplemental materials. $675
