The Art of Mosaics: Virtual Art Bus
November 12, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
This Virtual Art Bus will take you on a tour of mosaic art in museums, public buildings, and street art locally and around the world. You’ll learn the story of the daughter of Hungarian Jewish immigrants who gifted a 10 by 17 foot Murano glass and natural colored Italian stone Chagall mosaic to the National Gallery of Art, and see its journey from her Georgetown garden. Via the magic of Zoom, we’ll travel to Phoenix, Tucson, Chicago, New York, LA and to France, Italy, New Zealand, Venezuela and Cuba. Together we will view rich full color images and videos as we uncover other stories behind what you see along with different fabrication techniques, styles, design and composition.
Tamsin is a professionally trained career museum educator and local artist. After you’ve been inspired, she will then walk you through a variety of resources to create a masterpiece on your own. From simple inexpensive all-in-one kits to house numbers or garden stepping stones, you do not need previous art training or talent to create fun mosaic memories or to appreciate mosaic art.
When you register, you will be sent written materials that include resources for optional supplies and materials along with the sign-on instructions for this Zoom format class. REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE 24 HOURS PRIOR TO THE START OF THE CLASS.
