Mosaic Arts

Explore the ancient art of mosaics! Learn how to draw a mosaic design that considers positive and negative space and color, and how to work with tumbled glass, tile, adhesives and grout to bring your design to life. We’ll cover proper safety procedures for working with glass and techniques for laying thin-set mortar and grouting.
