You are invited to join me in Matakohe Northland at the home studio of Pat George for a contemporary glass on glass mosaic portraiture workshop focusing on colour and value in portraiture. The dates are listed as 22nd -25th ... but PLEASE NOTE, the workshop is a TWO day intensive. There are two times offered: a premium weekend 22-23rd, and a rebated weekday workshop 24th-25th.
Using powerpoint, discussion, and hands on techniques we will explore the principles and elements of design as they relate to mosaic portraiture, with an emphasis on colour, and value. We will develop an emotively descriptive colour scheme, then digitally develop a template to be mosaiced, from your own photograph. Participants will learn to effectively use colour to describe shape within an image. Please join me in exploring your colourful side!
Please note that $50 of your fees will be donated directly to support the upcoming New Zealand Mosaic Art exhibition.
Linda Woodhouse reviewed Pieceful Arts - Fine Art Mosaics by Suzanne Coverett Earls — 5 star
I would like to thank Suzanne (Sunny) for the amazing portraiture class this past weekend. I've taken many glass classes from different artists around the country and can honestly say this was the best! Suzanne was prepared to share her extensive knowledge of composition, design and application - not withholding her "secrets" as some artists do.
Her gentle and encouraging teaching style worked well with our different levels of experience. The accomplished artists in the group were as able to benefit as the neophytes from her vast knowledge of the animal world. We weren't just doing dogs and cats here - owls, peacocks, lions - she seemed to know them all!! One thing she was able to effectively do for me was to make me open my eyes to the smallest detail.
She also addressed our personal styles and helped us move forward and grow with a reasonable level of comfort. I used color in a way I would never have thought possible and am becoming less restricted and uptight. I hope I can put into practice and hang on to these new ways of thinking!!
Suzanne has been very generous with her time and knowledge and I really hope she will return to do another workshop soon!!!
