Laura Rendlen...​Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark!....Exploring the Shadows & Light....
Thunderbird Art Center...North Phoenix (12th St & Grovers)...January 19 & 20, 2019...Saturday & Sunday...10am -4pm
$295/pp ($30 materials fee due in class)



Shadows define dimension. In this workshop we will brave the concepts of gray scale, tone and value, highlights and shadows. Creating a series of studio studies. Laura will introduce color theory as it applies to mosaic while exploring shadows, dimension, light and dark  –  all without using black!

Along the way, we will review both traditional and contemporary andamento and how to select what techniques work best for the emotion you are working to articulate.  Understanding classical andamento in concert with color theory concepts guarantees a lyrical quality will become a part of your mosaic repertoire.  Our mosaics will be made using stained glass or smalti.  With Laura’s individual attention you will see the light.


...So join us at Tbird for a weekend of learning and adding to your mosaic voice! 

Please enjoy the samples of Laura's work pictured below....notice the importance of the shadows!
