Yulia Hanansen "Interpreting Paintings Into Mosaics"... Workshop Registration is Open!

  • The Benchmark School 2107 North Providence Road Media, PA, 19063 United States (map)

Fascinated by an impressionist art? Admire John Singer Sargent's watercolors or a portrait by Rembrandt? All these artworks can be translated into a mosaic medium using stained glass as paint and cutting and nipping tools as brushes. Students will learn how to decipher the sequence in which the artwork was created, how to start, follow through and add finishing touches to the mosaic, and how to pick out proper colors and assign effective andamento (the flow). To ease the process of translation the students have a choice to use a double reverse method for glass working directly over the image. Because the layout takes place right on top of the image and the pieces are adhered to a sticky film first, the method makes the color and shape matching less complicated and the whole layout process faster. After the layout is complete, the mosaic is securely adhered to a permanent substrate.

Dates: September 29th (10 a.m.- 5 p.m.) and Sunday September 30th (9 a.m.- 4 p.m.), 2018 Workshop will be held at the Benchmark School, 2107 N Providence Rd, Media, PA 19063

Cost for MSOP Members : $330.00, for non members : $365.00

Please note that students will supply their own stained glass. Yulia will contact you two weeks prior to the workshop to guide you in your image and color choices.
