July Mosaic Weekend Workshop at the CAA


The Cooperstown Art Association is pleased to announce a wonderful opportunity to learn the art of mosaic with renowned mosaic artist, Yulia Hanansen of Baltimore, MD to be held on Saturday and Sunday, July 7 & 8 from 9am-4pm.  This opportunity comes at the close of her solo show on display at the Cooperstown Art Association  June 8 - July 6, "Cosmic Powers, Earthly Flowers” featuring work from Yulia's "Starscapes" series and flower mosaics.

If you would like to create a mosaic but don’t know how to start this is the right fit for you.   This highly informative hands-on workshop is for beginning students. You will learn how to plan out your mosaic masterpiece from start to finish. This includes design specifics, cutting and nipping tiles and glass, mosaic layout styles, and proper gluing instructions. Grouting demo will be given at the end of the workshop. You will have a choice between a mirror or a wall piece, enough glass colors to satisfy the wildest imagination, and professional tools to work with. Join in the fun and create something extraordinary! Materials are included.  The workshop fee is $325 for members and $330 for non-members.  For more information on Yulia please visit her website

Yulia Hanansen was born in 1972 in Moscow, Russia. She lived in Russia, Uzbek Republic, Lithuania, New York City, Ann Arbor, MI, and is currently residing in a charming city of Baltimore, MD, USA.  Yulia is a second-generation mosaic artist and has been involved in mosaic making since 2001. The mission of her Mosaic Sphere Studio is to build public awareness about the quality of mosaics, and to exhibit the superb qualities of mosaic techniques. Mosaics are made for commission, or they can be purchased as ready-made pieces on-line or at the studio gallery. Pieces include architectural installations, back-splashes, wall pieces, public and community projects. Along with mosaic artwork Yulia teaches mosaic art at the mosaic schools throughout US. Ms. Hanansen’s works have been exhibited in the galleries nationwide: Chicago, San Francisco, New York City, Mesa, Miami, Lake Oswego, just to name a few. Work has been collected by patrons in the USA (AZ, MA, NY, CA, IL, FL, GA, MI, TX, WA, OH, PA, NJ, OR), Russia, Lithuania, Uzbekistan, Israel, Australia, Italy and South Pole.
