Students are called to express their own creativity freely. Luca will help each one to find the correct design and recreate it in mosaic, recognizing that his ability to improvise is what makes his work so exciting and noteworthy.
Students will learn the difficulty of simplicity. By following Luca's technique, students will create their own mosaics by using a colored Mapei thinset base and a wide variety of materials such as smalti, stained glass, marble and ceramic..
Students are welcome to bring additional materials of their choice.
The final result is that students will create an interpretation of their design in Luca Barberini's improvisational style.
