The courses are filling up fast, so book your seat at Valerie or Kirsten if you are interested.

In  France I will teach at Valerie Nicoladze her studio. Here I am teaching two courses in 3 days.

We make an abstract mosaic incorporating African beadwork. ( 20 x 20 cm ) 

I will bring the beadwork from Africa.

On our second project we are going to paint, mosaic and make beadwork. (20 x20 cm ) 

You do not need any painting skills. I will guide you through that process.

On our painting  we then make a mosaic with tessera and stacked beads.

At the 3 day course in the studio of Kirsten we work on one project, but go large ( 30 x 40 cm ) and more in-depth with the intuitive painting process, mosaic and bead combination technique.

Have you been looking to expand your mosaic substrate horizon? Perhaps you could use new ways to add your mosaic vision to a substrate that undulates and has movement? Mosaic Arts Online is proud to present Karla Duterloo’s online course “2D Substrates with Mosaic and Beads.”

 

In this online course, Karla shares her inspiration and what led her to create her mixed media mosaic artwork on these special and unique substrates. Karla’s techniques will help you find creativity where no two substrates will ever be the same.

 

Karla demonstrates in three different ways how to create these undulated substrates where you can add more details and effects. This will give each version its own style and voice.
