Interactive On-line Learning
This workshop is for anyone looking for immediate mosaic inspiration, interactive dialogue and both creative and technical guidance.This interactive workshop developed as a consequence of our “stay at home” Covid period. It was such a hit we are expanding the offering indefinitely in 4 week pockets.
WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING: “I so enjoyed the class! Our weekly discussions were really great. Helped me to see techniques, composition and subtleties I may not have appreciated. Your positive, learning vibe and that of the group was so welcoming and motivating. I appreciated the various levels of expertise. The class is a great place to experiment and try new things. I think the Zoom approach worked great”! – Karen S.
Maverick Mosaics owner Bonnie Fitzgerald leads on-line interactive workshops via the Zoom meeting platform for SMALL groups. We will meet a total of 4 times, approximately 1.5 hours per meeting. Included in the workshop format is a 30 minute one-on-one session with Bonnie during a mutually agreed upon date and time AND a completion follow up one-on-one 30 minute meeting.
The workshop goal is for you to progress on an individual project of your choosing, with the support of your classmates and formal instruction and guidance from Bonnie. All are encouraged to use whatever materials are available to you. There is no required supply list. Some mosaic experience helpful and all levels welcome.
At our first meeting we will introduce ourselves and work through any technical challenges. There is a simple assignment prior to the first class, details upon registration. Every class meeting there will be a comprehensive lecture.
Weeks 2-4 meetings are approximately 1.5 hours total per meeting and will include:
- Review of previous week homework.
- Lecture, each week a different lecture, 15-20 minutes, tons of pretty pictures. Optional homework to reinforce weekly lectures.
- Sharing as appropriate the individual project you are working on.
Included in the workshop fee is any other guidance via email as you progress on your project throughout the course period.
SUBJECTS COVERED: Andamento and lay patterns, historical perspective, design principles and basic color theory, precision cutting, fabrication methods, other tbd depending on what instructor determines most needed for the group.
This will be the 5th offering of these on-line sessions and students are creating amazing and unique works. The interactive component makes these classes incredibly valuable for everyone involved. Bonnie
