Picassiette Portraiture (Animal or Human) (3-day class) with Gila Rayberg

August 18-20, 2017

Friday - Sunday

Hours: 10am – 5pm with a lunch break

Skill Level: intermediate or advanced mosaic artists, and should not be used as an introduction to making mosaics

Materials included: Wediboard Substrate, thin-set and some "Memory-ware"

minimum # of students: 6  (currently 5 are registered)


Students should bring "Memory-ware", ie. dishes, plates, saucers, etc- glass/ceramic materials to incorporate into and personalize their work... bring extra to share! There will also be some "Memory-ware" provided.


In this course students will create a portrait of their own choosing.  Emphasis will be on picassiete, using dishes and pottery, to develop texture & pattern within your work.  This technique is time consuming, so a finished portrait is not expected at the end of the two day workshop, however the eyes and a good portion of the face can be completed, depending on the experience of each student. I will assist each student in mapping out a plan for completion of their work at home.  This workshop is intended for intermediate to advanced mosaic artists, and should not be used as an introduction to mosaics.
