Mosaic Reflections

Also in January, the ShaDeeLa workshop explored the art of creating mosaic mirror frames. Instructors Sharon, Dee and Deb reviewed the basic mosaic techniques including layout, design and focal point. ShaDeeLa’s students then began to create their colorful masterpieces. The mirror frames were created from a unique combination of vintage plates, old glass bottles, ceramic souvenirs, letter tiles and other treasured items. Classmates encouraged one another to create without inhibitions and were thrilled to take home a piece to reflect on!

Due to popular demand for this project, we plan to schedule another class in early Fall 2010. Email us if you’d like to receive our upcoming the workshop schedules.

“It was a relaxing and fun class. The playfulness of piecing together the “puzzle” took me back to being a free-spirited kid!”

Soul-filled Shelters

One-of-a-Kind Mixed Media Treasures

ShaDeeLa’s first workshop of 2010 as an absolute success. Held in the quaint town of Snow Hill, Maryland, this workshop focused on taking meaningful objects and turning them into a Soul-filled Shelter.
Everyone seems to have a box of little curiosities collected during nature walks, gathered from yard sales and salvaged from the jewelry box. ShaDeeLa’s Soul-filled Shelter workshop focuses on turning these trinkets into an artistic reflection of a moment in the student’s life.

Starting with a small wooden house, ShaDeeLa instructors Sharon, Dee and Deb, guided students through the various steps of painting, stamping and embellishing to ensure each house met their artistic vision. By the end of the workshop, students had created Soul-filled Shelters with themes such as Burning Love, Dream, Create and Journey to name a few.
