2017 Workshops hosted by CMA


Picassiette Portraiture with Artist Gila Rayberg

Hosted by Colorado Mosaic Artists, Denver CO

September 22 – 24     3 full days, 10am – 5pm

$300 + $50 material fee (substrate, picassiette materials, glue grout)

Some previous mosaic experience recommended

In this workshop students will learn to create a mosaic portrait of their own choosing. Emphasis will be on picassiette, using dishes and pottery (in addition to other materials if desired) to develop texture and pattern within their work. Students are encouraged to bring some of their own unique finds (dishes, pottery, teacups etc.) to incorporate into and personalize their works. Part of the joy of picassiette comes from collecting materials. Thrift stores & yard sales finds are perfect, as is clearing out cabinets of chipped, cracked dishes, and those broken bits that you can’t bear to throw away, but would love to incorporate into your art! Bring extra to share ensures that there will be unique and surprising selections for all.

You will need to bring: Tools, additional picassiette materials, reference image – Gila will send each registered student a letter with specific instructions on choosing & preparing their reference for the workshop.
