Civilized Wildlings: Mosaic Art Project
On November 4th, participants will learn to assemble small pieces of ceramics and glass, to create a mosaic landscape design on a 10”x10” board. Participants will cut, design and assemble pieces of pre-made and upcycled glazed ceramics and glass, into their very own design. Projects should evoke inspiration from the native prairie grass landscape of Eastern Iowa. The mosaic design will then be affixed to the board with adhesive and dried overnight. All mosaic boards will be grouted and then the one-of-a-kind projects will be available for pick-up one week later, on November 11th.
From 80 participants in the workshop, Jill will select approximately 20-30 boards to be a part of her larger Community Exhibition. If your project is selected to be a part of the large Community Installation Project, you will receive an email with detailed instructions via email before November 11th.
Please note that if your piece is chosen to be a part of the Community Exhibition, you may choose to have ICCGS store your project until after the exhibition comes down in 2024. If you have been asked to be a part of the exhibition, and choose to take it home with you, your mosaic will need to be dropped off at ICCGS in March 2024.
