At Seattle Mosaic Arts, our commitment is to create a supportive shared space where people can come and work independently but in community, side by side, piecing together.
Studio Membership offers great experiential learning. You get one-on-one instruction each step of the way, working at your own pace. We offer a wide range of Member’s Advanced Trainings to help support your on-going development as a mosaic artist.
We offer two levels of studio membership. The Basic Level is designed for folks who are excited by mosaics as a creative outlet or hobby. The Professional Level membership is geared towards artists working at an advanced level and creating works for sale and shows. For mosaic artists who already have a studio, but want to be part of the Seattle Mosaic Arts community and to foster mosaic arts in the Pacific Northwest, we also offer an annual Supporting Member Level.
To begin creating mosaics at the studio, please contact us to arrange a New Member Orientation.
