We are having a great time with our live online classes! In addition, in September I started in-studio classes with a maximum of 5 students! See below for more information.
Adult Mosaic Art Classes
“When our mosaic class went virtual, I was a bit skeptical at first…I didn’t know what to expect. But wow was I pleasantly surprised! The experience is very much like being in the studio: all students get collective and individual instruction from Cheryl as well as the benefit of sharing feedback and ideas from other students. I have enjoyed learning and working on new projects and very much look forward to each class. An extra bonus of the virtual class is the convenience of sitting in my own home, with no travel time and no need to carry my project/ materials to and from the studio!”
Cheryl’s online mosaic classes provide a wonderful creative experience, just like taking classes in her studio, and are lifesavers for us mosaic addicts in a time of quarantine.
Cheryl Cohen Mosaics Art Center is a Holliston art studio where children and adults can relax, laugh and create! It’s a great place to explore your creative expression in a supportive, relaxed environment! No previous art experience is necessary.

Come try mosaic art! Beginners start with making a coaster or light switch cover. No need to come with ideas, we just start off learning to use the tools and most make an abstract piece.
The next project is often plate smashing (yes, smashing plates with a hammer) and decorating a picture frame with plate shards. Cheryl will show you how to use the tools to shape the plate shards or glass.
If you continue after that, you can make a project of your choice with the wide variety of materials in the studio; tables, trays, vases, pendants, and more! For those of you with experience or interest in a specific project, we will talk about where you want to start and go from there. This class is for all levels.
The classes below are on hold during the pandemic. Contact me if you would like to be on my mailing list to receive updates about new classes both online and in the studio!

You can use glass, tile, shells, rocks and more to create your unique piece of art. These make special keepsakes and amazing gifts!

Come and make a coaster/decoration, light switch cover, or up to two pendants and learn to use the mosaic wheeled cutters to shape glass pieces. Your project can be completed in one session and grout will be given to you to finish at home, or you can sign up for another class, four or 10 pack, to complete your project.
If you have another thought, talk with Cheryl as there is some flexibility. Just be sure to register to make sure there is room in the class.

Come join this brand-new class on making mosaics with natural materials! Mosai-stix is my newest obsession!
Join us to create your own Mosai-Stix piece!
All materials are included in the class fee. I have limitless rocks, glass and other embellishments to complete your piece! Feel free to to gather materials prior to the class, ideally two weeks prior to class so that the sticks will have time to dry out. Additionally, if you have rusted metal, old keys, or other weathered items please bring them to use or share.
You will learn to mix and apply a cement based adhesive and about composition, balance, and contrast that will make your piece into work of art!
We will create on a 22×7 inch base with 3 mirrors (above). Everyone works at different rates, so you may or may not complete your piece in the allotted time. If not you may need additional class time to complete your piece, or if you are close to finishing, you can bring materials home. If you would like a different mirror/base that is approximately the same size you are welcome to bring it (wood or a wood composite is best for the base), however it may also take additional time/sessions to complete.
If you need additional classes, you are welcome to attend any of my Tuesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday $45 classes, that are listed under class registration. You can purchase one class, or save per class by purchasing a class package (a 4 or 10-pack) if you want to continue your mosaic journey! No need to come consecutive weeks, just pick the class(es) you want to attend, check with me to see if there is room in class, and you are all set! All my classes are mixed levels so you will fit right in.
Mosai-Stix class size is limited to 10 participants, so sign up today!
Alcohol Inks with Crash Glass!
Date: On hold during the pandemic, see my online classes for now!
Fee: $135 (includes a $20 supply fee, all supplies included)
Ages: 16 through adult
Alcohol Ink is a highly pigmented and fast drying medium with intense color. We will explore several techniques to apply the ink including: brushes, markers droppers, felt stamp, spray bottle and sponges. After layering and blending the inks, we will cover the surface with ‘crashed’ tempered glass to create a unique effect with incredible depth.
You can choose to:
1) use the full session to explore the alcohol inks
2) complete one piece with the alcohol ink, apply the crash glass and take your piece home to grout
3) explore at your leisure and complete the project in future classes!
I’m excited to have Lee Berman, a well known artist in our community, teaching this class!
Dates: On hold during the pandemic, these classes typically run May-Oct every year
Time: 4-hour class
Fee: $180, includes window or two frames (approx. 8×10 to 14×16), and all supplies
Optional: “Lighthouses, Flowers, Water and More,” $45, (combined with Windows class, $215), 2 hour class prior to the windows class if you want to cut glass and make stained glass components for your window! Without this 2-hour class, you can make a window with the “sprinkle” technique as seen in this picture (no cut glass). See below class for more information.
Ages: 16 and up
We will be learning to mix, pour and de-bubble resin, and the ins and outs of designing windows! Supplies are included however, feel free to bring sea glass, shells, and other items/shards to incorporate into your piece. Clear items work well so that the sun can reflect through them, if you are going to put the window in a window. If you are going to put it on a wall, any non-porous item can be used. Bring what you like and I’ll tell you what will work.
The class fee of $180 includes all materials (including the window or two prepared picture frames). You are welcome to bring your own window (no larger than approx. 36×30). Additional picture frame sized pieces can be made for $25 each.
Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather that can get messy, as the windows need to stay open for ventilation and the adhesive is sticky. So no AC or heat while making windows. Long hair needs to be in a ponytail.
The windows need to dry overnight, so you are welcome to pick up your piece during my regularly scheduled classes, Tuesday and Thursday mornings 10-12:30 or Thursdays 4:15-10 pm. Check my schedule online for Friday and Saturday class times also.
These projects are large, so class size is limited to the first 8 people who register online. Sorry I’m unable to hold spaces open without registration.
Making lighthouses, flowers, water, trees and more!
Date: Looking forward to resuming after the pandemic!
Fee: $45, students on a 4 or 10-pack can use one of their classes, or $35 for students who register for both this class and the windows class (see combined option).
Want to learn how to cutting curves and lines? In this class you will learn how to use mosaic tools and stained-glass tools (wheeled cutters, table straight cutter, scorer, score one cutter) to achieve the cut you desire! Obviously, all these techniques improve with practice, but you will get a taste of what the right tool is for the right cut, and have practice with each.
This is a wonderful class for:
- Ongoing students who want to improve their skills
- new students that want to take a Windows! class and want a more intricate design (i.e. lighthouse, flowers, trees and more)
- new students that want an overview of cutting skills
This class can be used in two ways. Some students may use the full class to prepare for the windows class or a larger project (choosing glass and cutting shapes) and others may want to use the last hour to start a small mosaic piece (approx. 4×6”) with the pieces you have cut.
Join us to learn more about glass! All levels welcome!
