Laura Redlen is back for her fourth time in Arizona! Last year we explored understanding light as an element by layering glass on glass to a stunning effect...but this year...due to popular demand- we invited her back for her full course in abstracting materials and landscapes in this engaging and enlightening workshop! We will work with glass, stone, ceramic, pottery and different items to express or landscapes. Understand how to create from the senses.

"After 25 years in residential and commercial work, I began looking for something that would allow me
to spend less time "laboring on ladders." When I was approached to do a mosaic back splash, I gladly
accepted. After a great deal of research with all types of tiles, I created a Tuscan landscape. When the
project was installed, I knew I had found my calling.".......
"Mosaics combine the tactile construction of sculpture, the vision of painting, and the timeless
permanence that I had been searching for in art" - laura rendlen

In this class we will use grey scale values rather than traditional colors to create form and expression in creating a mosaic pet portrait. Precision cutting techniques will be covered, as well as andamento, glass selection and shading. Since this technique is more time consuming, a finished portrait is not expected at the end of the three day workshop, however the eyes and a good portion of the face can be completed, depending on the experience of each student.
This workshop is intended for intermediate or advanced mosaic artists, and should not be used as an introduction to making mosaics. Students can either work on a black and white photo provided by the instructor, or can provide a PHOTO prior to the class. Photos provided by the students should be high resolution showing good detail (not out of focus) and have fairly strong contrast between values. The instructor will map out the design before the class if using a photo supplied by the student prior to the class. A phone with a camera is recommended, as we will be using this as a tool in class to see grayscale values.
