Mosaic Arts Online presents Rachel Sager and her online course "The Intuitive VENN Mosaic: Crossing The Threshold Between ART and SELF."

The VENN Diagram is a powerful teaching tool for comparing and contrasting ideas. Its overlapping circles and its clear, concise walls help students to make connections between ideas. Rachel has adapted the strengths of VENN thinking into a course tailored specifically for the mosaic artist.

A VENN is simply a collection of circles. But more specifically, circles that overlap each other.

Those spaces of overlap are full of energy. They are where change happens. Using a VENN in your studio can help you break down artistic barriers. It can help you move, metaphorically, from one world into another. The VENN represents a stage. You are the director.

In place of the traditional words, you will explore material, color, and andamento as you learn to build a very VENNISH composition. Rachel will lead you, step by step, through the parts and sections of four unique VENN mosaics. You will learn how to make direct connections between these threshold spaces and the spaces in your own life and studio practice. You will learn how to sketch your own VENN compositions and discover how quick repetition is the key to building a good one.

The beauty of this composition is that no two VENNS are or will be alike. The circular format stays the same but you choose how it will be built. This is a whole new way of thinking about your art practice.

You can choose to make one VENN but more likely you may see a series of these fascinating compositions in your future.

Your VENN stage can be a healing composition or an intuitive journey. It can be as simple as a study in marble and as transformative as grappling with your biggest fear.
