Luminous Glass Mosaic Window taught by lifelong working artist Francine Gourguechon
Enjoy the fun and concentration of creating your own unique and dazzling mosaic glass window. You will apply glass pieces on a plexiglass panel using a photo or art print of your choice as a template. I have some Van Gogh, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Edward Hopper prints you can use or bring your own 8x10" size print to work from. I provide the plexiglass panel, multiple art glass colors, adhesive, grout and tools. The studio is comfortable and casual and I play good music! Bring refreshments if you like but I don't recommend alcohol as we will be working with tools and glass..OUCH! Note: This is a 2 session class: Sat 5/14/16 1-4:00 Sat 5/21/16 1-4:00
I am a lifelong working artist with a concentration on Mosaic Fine Art. I work out of my studio in Rogers Park and teach classes to adults and children. I have great respect for the mosaic medium as it is an enduring and historical process long used in places of worship and learning. While I respect the history of mosaics, my work is more contemporary in feeling and I create my work with unusual materials and sculptural forms. You can see my mosaic installations and sculptures on my website: chicagomosaics.com
