The Mosaic Art Kits are a way you can be a mosaic artist too. From the comfort of your home, learn how to make a luminous mosaic with a kit that includes everything you need and video instructions from Francine Gourguechon, lead artist and founder of Chicago Mosaics.
Your Chicago Mosaics Art Kit comes a Georgia O’Keeffe flower print to use as a design template, various colors of art glass specific to the design, a 9x9” plexiglass sheet with corner holes to hang the mosaic when finished, a wheeled nipper tool for cutting and trimming the glass, glass glue, grout, latex gloves for grouting, a sponge for cleaning the grout off the mosaic and an instruction and advice sheet to help you as you work. There is also a YouTube tutorial to watch for more support, featured below. Take a look and get inspired!
This kit is unique in that it includes everything you need and is well designed based on Francine’s 20 years of experience doing mosaics and teaching classes to beginner and advanced students. Mosaic art is a wonderful art for both adults and young adults with proper supervision. O’Keeffe-inspired flowers are a favorite glass mosaic project from Francine's classes at the Chicago Botanic Garden, in art centers around the Midwest and her personal Chicago studio.
“The O’Keefe-inspired glass mosaic project has been very successful for people. It is a pleasure to see the joy and satisfaction of my students upon completion. Just wait until you see your Chicago Mosaics Art Kit flower finished and hanging in a window. You’ll be proud too!”
