This is the group photo from my first mosaic class, which just ended about 10 days ago. It was pure pleasure, and I think I learned as much as my students! Everyone was enthusiastic and really creative, so I often felt like all I had to do was be there for questions, mostly. Most students were able to complete two projects and eagerly embraced several different mosaic construction styles, material choices, and shapes. Several people expressed interest in going on to an intermediate class, where we'll be exploring 3-D mosaics. What fun!
