About the Workshop
AOB recently launched a new collaboration with Airbnb, the online platform that “lets you travel like a local”. Their Social Impact Experiences help travelers explore the people and places that make DC unique while giving back to the community as a whole. Airbnb promotes our workshops to DC visitors, and locals can join in too. Best of all, 100% of the proceeds go to the AOB studio fund. Book a workshop today, help AOB grow, and make your own travel-inspired art!
What We’ll Do
Arts on the Block offers mosaic workshops in a professional art studio. With hands-on help from our studio crew, you’ll sketch out a design, learn basic glass-cutting and puzzling techniques, and get to work on a personal project. Each piece is finished in a few hours, left overnight to cure, and available for pick up or shipping the next day.
Mosaic is an ancient art form with a very contemporary flair. Artists all over the globe create stunning interiors, exteriors, and objects using the magical combination of glass and grout. The history of mosaics is like a world tour – you’ll see the oldest examples as well as the hottest designs coming out today.
Mosaic’s materials are mesmerizing too! The colorful glass and ceramic tiles look like candy. Or maybe they remind you of your favorite aunt’s dishes. Or the gold shimmer on the green-blue water from your last ocean adventure. We have tons of gorgeous choices for a one-of-a-kind creation.
Just like you – our studio team bring their life experiences, travel memories, cultural backgrounds, and artistic eye to their own work. The inspiration is endless, and we’re here to help you find your fit in this timeless tradition.
