Interactive On-line Learning
This interactive workshop has been developed as a consequence of our “stay at home” period. Over 25 students from various states and countries have participated in these classes to date. We have opted to continue with these interactive classes indefinitely. These are for anyone looking for immediate mosaic inspiration, interactive dialogue and both creative and technical guidance.
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.
WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING: this is the 5th offering of these on-line sessions and students are creating amazing and unique works. There is so much good will and gratitude among the classes. I have received such positive feedback and requests to continue mentoring and small group on-line classes post Covid! I am humbled and flattered. The interactive component makes these classes incredibly valuable for everyone involved. Bonnie
Pricing. This is tough time for all of us, the price offered covers Maverick Mosaics out of pocket and anticipated time spent both preparing and presenting. If due to the mess called Covid you are in a financial bind I completely understand and I have “barter” opportunities for anyone who can not make the financial commitment. I could always use administrative help. Drop me a confidential note. No questions asked. IT IS IMPORTANT TO ME THAT WE KEEP OUR CREATIVE MOJO. THOSE WITH RESOURCES ARE HELPING TO OFF-SET OUR COLLEAGUES WHO ARE LESS FORTUNATE.
