SHEILA BUCCHINO STOLL – SMASHING GOOD FUN!
Breaking things isn’t always bad! Like they say, “One gals trash is another gals treasure!” How true this has been for me in my art-making experience. I use a wide range of materials in my work and most if it comes from our recycle bin, broken household items and even the side of the road. Nothing is beyond my scope when it comes to inspiration and breathing new life into discarded items is a real pleasure of mine.
Tonight we’re going to explore the glass smashing art experience of mosaic. Using a variety of glass and ceramic materials, we will design a collaborative piece together and discuss the basics of mosaic art. I will discuss choosing a substrate, which adhesive is best for those substrates, how to mix and use thinset mortar and grout and introduce the tools that are needed to get started making mosaic art. I have a few resource materials that will help you remember the tools and techniques that we will cover tonight, so don’t worry, I got you covered!
Speaking of covered, I’ve also provided gloves, safety goggles and masks. I will make every attempt at teaching you how to stay safe while you’re being wild and crazy smashing things around your house.
Creative Challenge: Spring – Without the Green
Don’t forget – The Creative Challenge is “Spring – Without the Green” Entries will be due at the May 2023 meeting. The prize for the winner is a $50 gift card from Jerry’s Artarama!
Kingwood Public Library Art Changeout
We will be changing out the artwork at the Kingwood Public Library on Friday, February 24, 2023 at 11:00 am. The art you bring for display will remain at the library until September. Any paid member who has helped us in the past (or is willing to help with the changeout on this day) is eligible to bring in their art for display. Just be sure the piece is ready to hang, with picture wire. Help us keep the display fresh, with new things for library patrons to look at!
