Welcome to the follow up to the very popular Intuitive Andamento with Rachel Sager. In this online course Intuitive Andamento 2.0 Rachel takes students deeper into the journey of using unique and carefully created lines to design a composition. In Rachel's first Intuitive Andamento she teaches how to create lines, learning about tesserae shapes, about how to cut natural materials and how they all play together without creating a design. Rachel's first Intuitive Andamento is a great stepping stone and recommended before taking this course but not mandatory. In this course Rachel steps it up with a wealth of even more information on how she uses her skills to create a composition. If you are a student of Rachel's first Intuitive Andamento, imagine now taking all your practice of creating lines and learning how to create them in a composition. Not only will you learn about composition, but there are lessons on creating a design, learning to work and source a variety of materials, color palettes and how to use negative space within your design. Whether students create their own substrates or buy them pre-cut Rachel will take you farther and deeper into your practice as a mosaic artist thinking about how the lines play with each other and how your own style can come to life when you know even more about Intuitive Andamento.
This online course is full of information as well as a downloadable PDF with all the tools, materials and resources so you can easily access them and be on your way!
