Michael Kruzich is one of very few teachers in the US passing down the Ravenna method of creating mosaics. The Ravenna Method is a special method of working that originated in Italy. The artist can work on the mosaic for long periods of time and adjust the pieces even weeks later, until the mosaic setting is finished and placed in a permanent mortar bed. Students also learn effective ways of using the Classical hammer and hardi cutting tools to make expert cuts in class. Check out the amazing projects students were creating in our last class!
The next Ravenna Method Intensive runs August 6-10. If you are interested, you can get class info HERE.
