Line Dancing with Color and Grayscale with Kelley Knickerbocker
December 10th-11th
9am-5pm with a one hour lunch
Fee $400.00

In this live and very engaging workshop, Kelley Knickerbocker will teach you how to work with color and grayscale. She will demonstrate how grayscale materials can work well with a variety  of colors in tinted thin set/mortar while building inventive and winding lines. Kelley’s relaxed  yet direct approach to teaching andamento (building lines) is very achievable and specific, giving students a way to understand and easily execute this method. 

What you’ll learn through demo and creating:

  • A flexible formula for transitioning between different materials 
  • A quick-and-dirty method for letting color sing in your interstices (grout lines) and changing mortar colors on the fly
  • How to build metaphorical color (character and liveliness) into a monochrome (or any) line of andamento 
  • Learn how to continuously change colors of mortar for a cohesive effect

You will walk away from this workshop with a better understanding of how to make a mosaic with lines that give your work continuity and colors that can bring vibrancy and life to your work. Kelley is one of the best mosaic art instructors out there today.

We are excited to have Kelley and all of her talents back at SBSMA. With her years of experience and enthusiasm you will leave with a wealth of knowledge, information, and a new energy to add to your mosaic art.
