On April 17th and 20th, I held 2 consecutive one-day workshops at Art Café :) The class was smaller than usual and so we were able to create very different works of art. I'll be off to Italy for 10-days in May for an intensive 3-day workshop, a conference and an exhibition and so do not plan another workshop there before another month from today. Hope to see you there next time! To know more about my trip to Italy, please visit my next blog :)
It had been a while since I last gave a workshop at Art Café :) They moved premises in January and I got busy preparing for my exhibition in March, but finally I'm back! Their new premises is smaller, but cozy and bright - I love it :) We had a great workshop and lots of creative students - the pictures speak for themselves.
This month I collaborated with Art Café in Maadi to teach a mosaic workshop for beginners.
I began the workshop with a brief presentation on the history of mosaic art from ancient times to present-day contemporary mosaics. Practical work then followed with a demonstration on how to choose your design and transfer it onto your surface, how to select your mosaic pieces and choose your colors according to your design, as well as how to cut and place each piece to create.
The results were amazing and it was fascinating to see the students create such beautiful pieces of art! I am proud of each and every one of them...
