Talented artist and business owner Candace Liccione offers two, two-session classes through the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council on mosaics in October. “Mosaics” focuses on taking mosaics to the next level by working in patterns using very small tiles in order to create patterns within patterns. The result is a wonderful arty mosaic piece. Finished works will be adhered to a wood base using glass tiles, stained glass, micro beads, buttons and other fabulous embellishments. Ages 13+. The class is Thursday, October 11 and 18 from 7 to 9 pm and will be held off-site at Wye River Designs, 4300 Main Street in Grasonville. Registration deadline is October 4. The cost is $55 for members of the Arts Council and $65 for non-members.
“Mosaic Art Bowl” guides students in a fun and easy project that incorporates tiles, broken plates, stained glass pieces, broken jewelry and other ‘finds’. The project can be worked in variations of a single color with creative trinket additions chosen by each student. Participants will learn to cut tiles, use adhesives, grout and other techniques for making a one-of-a-kind piece of art. The class is on Thursday, October 16 and 23 from 7 to 9 pm and will be held off-site at Wye River Designs, 4300 Main Street in Grasonville. Registration deadline is October 9. The cost is $55 for members of the Arts Council and $65 for non-members. The class is open to ages 18+.
