What is Mosaic Art Learning System?

It is a system based on teaching mosaics one technique at a time. Techniques are the building blocks of skills. When you know techniques you can make any mosaic. It is not a course with a bundle of videos based on a mosaic project.

It starts with defining skill levels from beginner to master so you can assess your starting point and goals.

For each category it suggests focus areas like basics or precision. And, it includes a library of Mosaic Technique Videos that present 1 technique (sometimes there are more than 1). Finally, it is flexible to allow you to select the order and pace that's right for you.
