About

Santa Barbara School of Mosaic Art was founded in 2009 by mosaic artist Tami Macala.   SBSMA is a great place to learn mosaic art in a creative and informative environment.  Tami has over 15 years experience as a professional mosaic artist and shares her knowledge and expertise with every workshop.   SBSMA hosts many talented visiting artists that travel from all over the world to come share their knowledge and expertise.  The variety of workshops lead students down many different mosaic paths, where the possibilities are endless.

We at SBSMA work very hard to incorporate an educational and creative experience where students explore and learn the art while being taught technical instruction through each project.

SBSMA is located in beautiful Santa Barbara, California. It is a wonderful backdrop to create mosaic art as well as a premier destination for art, music and the wine country.

SBSMA offers weekend workshops in a variety of mosaic art styles.  SBSMA also hosts parties for adults and kids alike.  There is open LAB time, an opportunity to come work during the week on your own project, with access to adhesives, grouts, tools and Tami’s guidance.

The SBSMA Supply store offers a wide variety of colorful tiles for indoor and outdoor projects, as well as tools, adhesives, grout and mosaic kits.
