No art experience? No problem! This mosaic class is ideal for beginners.

Over the course of four hours, artist Denise Davidson will guide you through the process of designing and creating your own mosaic artwork. You’ll explore the different types of glass and ceramics used in mosaics, and you’ll learn to attach them to a “substrate,” or surface, to create your final design.

Once you have the basics, you’ll choose a design template inspired by Yosemite’s natural beauty and build out your mosaic creation. Bring your piece home as a memento from your time in the park!
