Mosaic Arts Online is thrilled to bring you this one-of-a-kind project and course “Lady in A Hat® with Debra Mager.” This course is for you if you love fashion, or have been saving odd pieces and found objects hoping that one day they would be perfect for a certain project.

Debra has a knack for taking the unique and unexpected and turning it into something creative, colorful, and special.

  • Choosing a color palette
  • How to cut glass tiles for the facial features and neck
  • How to easily edge the substrate with glass tiles

  • How to choose and edit your jewels, baubles, and beads
  • How to create a layered composition that has balance, depth, and dimension
  • How to adhere pieces to the hat with specific adhesives adding strength and durability
  • How to add the “sweetener”

This is a great course for anyone who loves using colorful and unique pieces in their art. Creating a mixed media project like this is so achievable and gratifying. As Debra guides you in making your own “Lady in A Hat®,” you will see her come to life right on your studio table. You will start to see vintage pieces, found objects, and other beads and baubles in new ways for adding to your “Lady in A Hat®'' projects!

Debra Mager

After a successful career as a corporate marketing executive, and a lifetime of collecting art, Debra tried her hand at mosaic art. As the demand for her work started to grow from just family friends to commissions from fans across the country, Debra soon realized she had found her second calling.

Debra Mager is now an established and highly regarded self-taught mosaic artist traveling around the country to teach mosaic workshops and to participate in art festivals. She has a penchant for creating dimensional, whimsical and rather unconventional mosaic works, which include her unique mosaic floral arrangements, birds and other creatures, as well her jeweled mirrors and mosaic shoes.

Making mosaic art affords us the chance to reassemble broken parts and pieces into works of beauty. What could be more healing and rewarding than that?
