Mosaic Workshops at Willow Bend this summer!

Posted on by

Join local artist Karen Knorowski (our December 2015 potluck guest speaker) for an exciting two-day workshop on the art of mosaic at Willow Bend Education Center. Participants will learn and practice important mosaic techniques while focusing on the “indirect method”. Completed works will be permanently displayed on the North Thorpe Road Bridge near Francis Short Pond as part of the Rainbow de Rio Mosaic Project.

All materials will be provided and are included in the cost of the workshop. All levels welcome, ages 18 and up. Two-day workshop: $140. Discounts available for Willow Bend members and if you are interested in attending both workshops.

  • 1st workshop series: May 28-29, 9am-4pm
  • 2nd workshop series: June 11-12, 9am-4pm

About Karen and the Rainbow de Rio Mosaic Project : Karen Knorowski is a full-time art teacher at an elementary and middle school on the Hopi reservation. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Art from NAU and has attended numerous classes at the Institute of Mosaic Art in Berkeley, California. Karen is currently working on the Rainbow de Rio Mosaic Project which is a celebration of the various habitats, plants, animals, and overall ecological importance of the Rio de Flag as expressed through the art of mosaic.

Upon completion of the 2-day workshop, participants are encouraged to join Karen at the mosaic site to help complete the project while learning the “direct method”. This will be a volunteer opportunity and will take place later in the summer; dates will be announced.
