In this online course Carol Shelkin brings her incredibly well known unique and creative style to Mosaic Arts Online. Carol works in the impressionistic style to create the painterly flow of her work. In this course Carol teaches all of the techniques to create a successful mosaic in realism. This course is taught in lecture style. You will watch over hands as Carol breaks down this technique so that anyone can do it. Teaching many of the elements of art, Carol shows how to work in light and dark, how to see the different values of colors using a gray scale chart, how to see the shadows in a photographic model and how to make a line drawing as your so called "map". Carol demo's how to cut the glass and start to create her mosaic art piece. This online course is designed to give you ALL the information Carol teaches in her "in person" workshops including her student handout, the photographic model in both color and black and white as well as your own color wheel and gray scale value chart (using your own printer).
The brilliance of owning this course is the limitless times you can refer back to the information. Taking a course "in person" is always nice to meet and engage with the teacher but when you own this online course you will have the ability to watch it as often as you like and see up close without distractions. This is one the best forms of learning and practicing this style of mosaic.
