Modern Technique and Portraiture with Carolina Zanelli- NEW FORMAT!!



Italian artist Carolina Zanelli leads students through a 4-day workshop on creating mosaics (including portraiture) in a modern style. Students will create two projects from pre-selected designs – one interpreting a section from a contemporary artwork, and the other focusing on a detail area of a face. Participants will then be able to take the skills learned from both projects back to their studios and incorporate them into their own larger works—from representational to abstract to an entire portrait.   Designed for intermediate to advanced students, participants should be familiar with smalti, direct method, andamento and be comfortable with the hammer & hardie.  

Prework will be sent to registrants prior to the workshop. 

All materials are included. Prerequisite: Hammer & Hardie (or by permission).
