Traditional Italian Mosaics: Principles and Methods
International Center for the Arts
Monte Castello di Vibio, Italy
July, 10-24, 2022
In this two-week course, Rick Shelley demonstrated the methods of mosaic production. Students shaped stone, glass, and ceramic into tesserae to be used in three mosaic projects inspired by Roman mosaics, medieval mosaics, and contemporary mosaics. The class will be repeated in the summer of 2023.
The International Center for the Arts (ICA) is a complex of historic buildings within the walls of Monte Castello di Vibio, an ancient hilltop town in central Italy. Safe and friendly accommodations along with a mild climate, spectacular views, and traditional meals offer participants a rich, artistic experience.
