Adult Mosaic Art Classes

“Time spent at Cheryl Cohen Mosaics is when I can be creative and reflective at the same time.  I am a process-oriented person anyway, so spending time creating a piece of mosaics helps me slow down, enjoy the company of others, and totally impress myself on what I end up with!

Cheryl feels like a kindred spirit of mine.  In an oh-so-sweet way, she guides challenges my thinking and design.  A few of us have been coming to Cheryl’s studio for years, but she is happy to have one-timers too (betcha you’ll want to come back though).  Cheryl’s pricing structure allows me to pay for a “ten-pack” up front, which not only keeps my coming back, but allows flexibility to come either days or evenings, or miss a few weeks when my work gets demanding.”

Pricing/Packages:

One class: $42 Come try mosaic art! This is a great activity for parents and children, friends, teachers, students, etc. to get a taste of mosaics. You are welcome to come each week at the same time, or mix it up and come on different days as all the classes are open and people are working on projects of their choice. Anyone over the age of 8 is welcome, and you will learn to cut the glass! Beginners usually start with coasters, light switch covers or pendants. Give it a try!

4 Pack: – $140 Classes do not have to be consecutive. Beginners start with making a coaster, light switch cover or pendant. 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. You will be inspired by the other student’s creations and all of Cheryl’s art in the room. Just be sure to register (online) to make sure there is a spot available for you in class!

10 Family Pack:  $325 You can share these 10 art classes with children, grandchildren, grandparents, husbands, sisters-in-law you name it! But most of the time people buy the 10 pack for themselves and challenge themselves to make increasingly complex mosaics! Mosaic art classes do not have to be consecutive. My first student has been coming weekly for 5 years and creates spectacular mosaics!

Specialty Classes:

Create Mosaic Jewelry!
Date and Time: Fri, Nov 13, 7-9:30, Dec 7 12:30-3
Fee: $45
Ages: 8 and up

Learn the ins and outs of how to make mosaic pendants using a putty technique, which involves pressing glass, beads and more into an apoxy putty.  You can use glass, tile, shells, rocks and more to create your unique piece of art.  These make special keepsakes and amazing gifts!

All supplies to create two pendants are included in the class fee, and silver-plated earrings and pendants will be available at an additional fee.

These are gorgeous and make amazing gifts. No previous jewelry or mosaic experience needed!

Windows!

  • Mon, Aug 28, 1:00-5:00
  • Sun, Sept 23, 1:00-5:00
  • Mon, Oct 15, 9:00-1:00

Fee: $180, includes window or two frames (approx. 8×10 to 14×16), and all supplies

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.

Weekend Workshop!

  • Sat, Oct 27, 9:00-3:00 and
  • Sun, Oct 28, 9:00-1:00

Fee: $155, includes all supplies, but feel free to being sentimental items you would like to incorporate into your pieces.  Also includes pizza lunch on Saturday (you are welcome to bring something else if you have dietary restriction).

Ages: 16 and up

If you live far from the studio, or just want a deep dive in to mosaics this is the class for you!  Ten hours of mosaics and lots of learning, laughs, and creativity!

Beginners first learn the basics of mosaics by creating a coaster or light switch cover. You will learn how to cut the glass, trim, and glue.

Then plate smashing. Yes, break plates with a hammer which is as much fun as it sounds! Learn to position the shards and pick grout colors to enhance your design on a picture frame or tile. There is flexibility so if you have a different idea of what you want to make for a second project discuss it with Cheryl and she will let you know if it can be finished or adapted so that it will be completed within the weekend.

On the second day you learn about grout colors, and how to grout your pieces.

If you are a returning student who has made a coaster/light switch cover before, you can make the frame/mirror and then move onto another project. Or if you have another idea, we can discuss it and make it work.

Overall, you will learn to use a variety of materials (rocks, shells, jewelry, mirrors, beads, plate shards, etc.) to create. Feel free to bring grandma’s china, jewelry, sea glass or other sentimental items and we will try to incorporate them into your pieces. I will help you take a random group of objects and make a cohesive one-of-a-kind work of art. It’s fun, freeing and rewarding!
