PIECES OF THE PAST
ANCIENT MIRROR MOSAIC CLASS
Gene Sterud is a retired anthropologist/archaeologist with an interest in the ancient works of art called “Roman/Byzantine Mosaics.”
Mosaic is an art form dating back to ancient times. It involves placing small pieces of pebble, stone, shell, tile, glass or other material (called tesserae) together to form a pattern. The designs may be abstract or representational. Many methods and techniques of thousands of years ago are still used today.
Please join us on Thursday, June 14, 2018 from 12:30 PM – 3:30 PM as Gene will be teaching a class on now to make your own 9” x 9” mirror mosaic using vitreous glass, beach glass, pebbles, shells, half marbles, buttons and beads. Everyone goes home with a completed project.
Cost is $16.00 for supplies. Seats available are limited, so please RSVP at the Newport 60+ Activities Center located at 20 SE 2nd Street, Newport, or call 541-265-9617 to reserve a spot.
