Mosaic Workshop
Mosaic Workshop

Saturday, July 22
10:00 AM - 4:30 PM

Instructor: Leslie Mathie
Prerequisite: None

> VIEW MORE

Learn the ancient art of mosaics in this fun and educational workshop. This workshop will allow you to explore design options for your piece in either a flat orientation or 3D piece. Since mosaics are long thought of as painting with glass, you will have the chance to choose from several different types of tile and glass in an array of colors. You will learn how to cut and set the tiles and learn about different types of adhesive. And finally finish your piece with grout to make your art work all come together and ready for your home or garden. You may get a little messy in this class so wear comfy clothes you are not afraid to get dirty. This class is suitable for all experience levels.

Leslie had been creating mosaic art for over 20 years with formal training from master mosaic artist Luciana Notturni, in Ravenna, Italy. She is a member of The Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA) and regularly attends their annual mosaic convention held throughout the US. Her focus is on creating garden pieces and working on unique substrates. Leslie has been teaching mosaic art for over 8 years and enjoys seeing her students advance in mosaics.

Saturday, July 22. Members: $125; Non-members: $140; (Plus $15 materials fee payable to instructor)

Traveling Postcards are handmade art postcards that travel to women around the world who are survivors of violence and oppression as an expression of compassion and solidarity.

We are offering four professionally facilitated 90-minute workshops to make your own Traveling Postcard.

Workshops are fun, non-threatening and deeply moving. You do not need to be an artist to attend but you will have an opportunity to share your voice and to have your postcard exhibited at the MarinMOCA Small Treasures exhibition in December.

Traveling Postcards is a program of The Women’s Wisdom Initiative, a Bay Area nonprofit that uses the transformative nature of art to heal trauma from violence and to fight for gender equality.

Caroline Lovell, artist and the Founder and Executive Director of the Women’s Wisdom Initiative will be facilitating all sessions of the workshops. For more information about the Women’s Wisdom Initiative and to see postcards we have collected, please visit: http://womenswisdominitiative.org

Workshop 2: Saturday, October 14
Workshop 3: Saturday, December 9
11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Instructor: Margot Hartford
Prerequisite: None

> VIEW MORE

This one-day encaustics workshop is a great introduction if you have never worked with wax and the art of encaustics before. The workshop will examine approaches to using colored wax like paint, as well as experimenting with papers and other objects that can be embedded into the wax. We will address heating, fusing, and manipulating wax, as well as discuss colors, brushes, and where to find supplies. All materials are provided although students are welcome to bring along their own collage materials. Participants will be working on wooden panels and will take home at least two completed works of encaustic art.

Margot Hartford is a Bay Area lifestyle photographer who specializes in photographing people and interiors for commercial clients. While serving as a docent at SF MOMA, she discovered encaustic painting through the work of Jasper Johns. She created a small studio in her home to experiment with using wax to produce small pieces of art, usually incorporating her own photography. Here is a link to her art website: http://mhartford.com

Saturday workshops are from 11am – 4pm
