PIECES OF THE PAST
ANCIENT MIRROR MOSAIC CLASS
Eugene 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.
On the second Wednesday of each month, August through December, Mr. Sterud will be teaching a class on how 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. Please join us for the next class on Wednesday, August 10, 2022, 1:30 – 4:30 p.m.
Cost is $16.00 for supplies, to be paid to the instructor on the day of the class. Seats available are limited. Please register online @ www.newportoregon.gov/sc, or call 541-265-9617 to reserve a spot.
