Modern Mosaic “Free-Style” (5 days)

How_Make_Modern_MosaicSeptember 4-8, 2017

Break the Rules,
Free your Imagination!

Mosaic has long been considered at the service of painting. Not a real form of art, just a copy or artistic reproduction.

Mosaic art today enables the artist to diversify its uses, and make different types of mosaics, which can be summarized in two types:

  • Copy of antique mosaics
  • Copy and/or  reinterpretation of paintings

Free Style Modern Mosaic Class

“Free-Style” – Modern Mosaic Course

We arranged this special intensive class, that includes:

  • Use of the Direct or Indirect Method, depending on the function of the mosaic (wall, floor, 3D, etc.)
  • Use of traditional mosaic materials: smalti, marbles, stones, pebbles, with the addition of modern materials like ceramics, glass, industrial materials etc.
  • Maintenance of the characteristics of the original image (whether figurative or abstract) or a personal interpretation both of the execution and the materials and colours

The image brought by the student can be personal, or of a known artist.

The style can be a free interpretation, or a close reproduction.
