Oh yeah, last weekend I went to my Mosaics 101: Intro to Mosaics class at the Institute of Mosaic Arts in Oakland. It was amazing! I made a mosaic of Thea, the bear of my heart. I didn’t know what sort of finished-product we’d be leaving with, but as soon as the instructor said we needed to do a mosaic with a simple and prominent focal point, I had this bitch in mind.
Really, I learned a ton and left feeling really happy and confident that this is something I’ll keep doing. I made the decision not to purchase any supplies, since I’d like to take another class and really solidify my knowledge base before I splurge for the materials I’d need to do these bad boys on my own. But, I did buy a book, and I’ve already signed up for my next class, so I will consider this a success. Now everyone else go do something you’ve always dreamed of doing. It feels good!
