March 20-22...Gila Rayberg...Picassiete Portraits..all levels
$400/pp plus material fee $30
In this workshop, Gila will share all she knows about creating mosaic portraits using a variety of materials. Students will learn to cut, shape & blend stained glass, smalti, ceramic, dishes and other materials into a cohesive portrait. Gila will demonstrate the usage of various hand tools and provide tips on using multiple materials in combination to bring texture & interest to your portrait.
Each participant will receive individual attention & guidance, while working on their chosen portrait. Understanding that individuals works at a different paces, students are not expected to finish their portrait in a 3 day workshop, though many do. Gila will discuss a plan with each student on how to complete their unfinished works at home if needed. By the end of the workshop, students will have gained a good understanding of the process of choosing a subject, transferring a design, understanding value, laying materials of varied thicknesses, creating likeness, and much more.
Everyone is encouraged to bring some of their own unique materials (dishes, glass, found objects) to incorporate into and personalize their works.
Once students are registered, they will receive a letter from Gila with detailed instructions on selecting an appropriate portrait reference for the workshop.
