In this online course, Carol Shelkin brings her well known unique and creative style to Mosaic Arts Online. Carol works in an impressionistic style to create a painterly flow to her work. In this course, Carol teaches the techniques needed to create a successful mosaic in realism. This course is taught in a lecture style where you will watch an “over hands view.” Carol is skilled at breaking 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 "map." Carol demonstrates how to cut the glass and start 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 advantage of owning this course is the ability to refer to the information as often as you wish. It is always nice to meet and engage with a teacher when taking a course "in person,” but when you own this online course, you will have the ability to watch it as often as you like without distractions. This is one the best methods for learning and practicing this style of mosaic art.
Carol Shelkin, a visual artist is creating contemporary, fine art, original and intricate mosaic designs that eminent care and attention to detail with hand cut, high quality stained glass and other glass materials.
I LOVE LOVE Carol and this class. I purchased it last night and completed looking at all sections this morning. Carol has a gift of teaching - and she has made me "see" things so clearly for the first time. I have a passion for mosaics - and have taken classes in various locations from some great people, but after a while I find I forget alot of the technical aspects of what I learned - am so glad I found this website where i can build a library of classes and refer back to again and again. I cant wait to get started on this class! Thank you for creating Mosaic Art OnLine!!! Janis I.
