For this spring I don’t have any classes scheduled around the Bay Area, and that’s because I am trying out new things. My Kid Mosaic Parties are getting highly noticed and wonderful people have been inquiring and reserving them for their kids next birthday celebration. These KM parties are an unique way for your kids to create a special piece that they could keep forever!
Also, I have been doing these parties but, for the Big Kids in all of us! I did one a few weeks ago and it was a hit! I partnered up for this event with RareBird and it was a lot of fun! The birthday boy was celebrating his BIG 50 and wanted about 80 of his closest friends to make at the party a group mosaic where everyone collaborated, and even bought their own special trinkets and baubles to make the mosaic special. I could not believe how engaged everyone was! , it really was a unique experience not only for me but for everyone that participated. And the best thing is that when I finish the final details of the mosaic, I will be delivering it to the birthday boys home and he will display it on a wall in his backyard forever! This really gives me real joy and happiness! After this amazing experience I would love to do more of these Big Kid Mosaic Parties, so if you or someone you know is interested in knowing more please contact me . This really is an unique experience!
As for teaching more classes, right now I am only doing private classes at my home studio for 1 or 2 students at the time. I am also doing group classes of all ages but the cool thing is that I go to you. So, if you want to get a group together (kids or adults) then I will make for you a special package, which can be for a one day class or an ongoing series of classes. Contact me and we can discuss it! But I am offering the Glass & wine mosaic soireé class/party where you get a group of your best girlfriends and/or guy friends at your home or at another venue of your choice for a 2.5- 3 hr Glass Mosaic Experience,while enjoying some fabulous local wine or bubbly!
Last month, I had my first ever featured artist show at the Stained Glass Garden in Berkeley and it was fantastic! I got to feature seven new of my mixed media mosaics. But there is one specific piece that I was very proud of exhibiting!
Title: Carmen, 2015
Glass, shells, jewelry, porcelain, mirror
I made this piece to honor mi abuelita (my grandmother). Her name was Carmen and she died from Alzheimer’s about two years ago. I miss her dearly, and I wanted to make a piece that would show her essence and I hope I was able to convey this with this piece.
And for this month of April I have been invited by RareBird to showcase my mixed media mosaic pieces at their shop. Just like at the Stained Glass Garden I will be RareBirds featured artist of the month. For this exhibition I am showcasing pieces that represent my evolvement in mosaics and now mixed media. I am even exhibiting my first mosaic *ever* which is a piece I still love.
The opening reception will be on Thursday April 16th from 6-9 at RareBird vintage shop in Piedmont, CA.
Hope you can all make it in one way or another!
