All materials and tools will be provided, although, students may bring their own tools or objects (small items up to approx. 1” sq.) to include in their creation. Additionally, the student artist will receive a demo in grouting and a supply of grout to take home in order to complete their artwork. This class is designed for adults and teen-age art enthusiasts. Can be messy…wear appropriate clothing! Bring a sack lunch for a lunch break. $100 tuition includes all materials

    About Carol Turtness Newman: As a mosaicist, Carol is inspired by a love of color and form.  She paints with blocks of color using bits of cut glass, shards, stone, and other materials.  Each block of color is laid with intent as her artwork manifests into an abstract, or possibly a flower or mountain scene.   Her love of mosaic art is shared through teaching.    

    Carol’s mosaics and mixed media have been exhibited nationally in juried exhibitions most recently at the National Center of Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, CO.   Carol’s works of art are held in private and permanent collections such as Duke University Medical Center in Raleigh, NC, and Carolinas Medical Center of Pineville, NC.  After living in Charlotte, NC, for nearly 12 years, Carol returned to Colorado where she grew up.  She is a member the Colorado Mosaic Artists.
