Visual Art Studio (VAST) workshops are a great way to connect with other creatively-minded folks in our community while learning a new art media!

Offered in our studio year-round to all ages in various media VAST workshops are led by professional teaching artists who specialize in their discipline and love to share their craft. 

Instructor Janice Levitt will teach you how to create a textured mosaic with slate, other materials from nature, and glass. Mix thin set, cut and prepare materials, and adhere slate and other mosaic pieces into a bed of thin-set mortar. In this class, you will learn different ways to use your materials to create texture and interest.

You’ll create your own small mosaic in the AOB studio to take home at the end of the workshop! Materials are provided, but you are welcome to bring any special objects you would like to include in your mosaic, such as shells, beads, or pebbles.
