Students will discuss appropriate substrates and the execution of the mosaic using the direct method with thinset.  Students do one-on-one, online conferencing with the instructor (prior to the course) to discuss concept intent and suggestions for sketching and design.  Each day consists of lectures, exercises, critique, discussion, and individualized instruction while working. 

All materials are included. Prerequisites: Hammer & Hardie, Andamento Drawing for Mosaic, Design Fundamentals, Mosaic III (was Direct Method), Undulation Workshop, Clay in Mosaics, Texture Workshop, Smalti Dimensions.
