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 mosaic fruit plate, colorfulcreating 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.”

mixed media student mosaic class forest stairsPricing/Packages:

One class: $45 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!

This series is for those who desire a more detailed step-by-step process of how to make an 8×8, or 8×10 inch mosaic.

This is a four-week session, the first two sessions will be on the dates given, the next two can after that the group will have the choice of coming to the last two classes during any of the scheduled classes (weekly Tuesday 10-12:30, Thursdays 10-12:30 or 7-9:30, or monthly Friday or Saturday classes, see schedule for details).  Depending on the level of detail of your design you may need one or two additional classes, which are available at an additional fee.

Windows student beachWindows!

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

Ages: 16 and up

Dates: Will start up again in May and run through Oct!

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.
