ART 143 Mosaics I (3 credits)
After reaching its pinnacle during the ‘ate Byzantine period, mosaic art has remained a virtually unexplored medium. We will look at some of the most interesting historical mosaics sites through video and slides and use that information along with contemporary techniques to make two-dimensional mosaic projects. Glazing is used as a painting technique in mosaic making; therefore, it is emphasized and expertise in this area is required in the class. This course may be taken as an independent study.
