October  9-11, 2018 - Tuesday - Thursday
October19-21, 2018 - Friday - Sunday

Hours:  10 am - 5 pm with a lunch break

Material included


minimum # of students: Minimum has been reached. This workshop will not be canceled.


In this workshop we will be using Donna's personal collection of Wasser Glass (no longer made). This workshop is exclusive to Luna Mosaic Arts!!


In this class we will use greyscale values rather than traditional colors to create form and expression in creating a mosaic pet portrait. Precision cutting techniques will be covered, as well as andamento, glass selection and shading.


Since this technique is more time consuming, a finished portrait is not expected at the end of the three day workshop, however the eyes and a good portion of the face can be completed, depending on the experience of each student. This workshop is intended for intermediate or advanced mosaic artists, and should not be used as an introduction to making mosaics.


Students can either work on a black and white photo provided by the instructor, or can provide a PHOTO prior to the class. Photos provided by the students should be high resolution showing good detail (not out of focus) and have fairly strong contrast between values.

The instructor will map out the design before the class if using a photo supplied by the student prior to the class.


A phone with a camera is recommended, as we will be using this as a tool in class to see grayscale values.

About the Instructor: Donna Van Hooser



I love working in mosaic, especially dealing with the challenges and limitations of the materials. The glass must be carefully chosen from a limited palette, since colors cannot be mixed, and each piece must serve as an individual brush stroke working in harmony with the surrounding pieces.
