To awaken your creativity in a fun and playful way, join me for my mosaic workshops where you will learn which tool, materials and techniques to use while creating your own unique artwork.

You will create permanent projects for indoor/outdoor applications using pieces of ceramic, glass, pebbles, mirrors, china, beads and pottery.  Participants can bring their own materials if they hold a special significance, but a wide range of mosaic materials and all use of tools will be included in the price of the workshop.  The projects will involve working on either two- or three-dimensional surfaces. You can start by creating your own design or follow patterns that are available at the studio.

You will find the transformation from small pieces into a complete mosaic to be a deeply satisfying process. Participants enjoy the results of their pursuit and get inspired by working alongside of others who are drawn to this beautiful ancient art form.

During our recent visit to Salt Spring we decided to try one of the many workshops offered on the Island. We ended up at Luba's studio and had a wonderful time over 2 evenings creating beautiful mosaic tiles. Luba was incredibly generous in accommodating our timing and provided us with everything we needed and all the skilled guidance. We thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and meeting other folks from the Island at the studio. Thank you Luba! You truly helped make our visit such a memorable time.read more

My sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed Luba’s two-day mosaic class. The atmosphere in Luba's studio was relaxed and the hours melted away. Luba, a knowledgeable and experienced mosaic artist, guided us through the steps of making a mosaic mirror. We loved the experience of creating a design and choosing the colours and patterns. Spending two days in Luba’s studio was the highlight of our sisters’ retreat. Pat Campbellread more

I recently took the mosiac workshop with Luba Nikitina while on a trip to Salt Spring Island. Luba was a very warm and inviting instructor. This was everyone's first attempt at doing mosiac work and each project turned out very well. Some of us were a little slower and Luba kindly let us stay a little later and start early so that all projects were completed. I found the course very enjoyable. BH Winnipeg, MBread more

The Mirror, Mirror on the Wall May 2019 workshop was fabulous and fun. Upon arrival at each class our individual 'stations' (with tools and supplies) were setup and the organized shelves were full of tiles, stained glass, pottery... everything and more.. to create your beautiful mosaic project! Luba's expertise, dedication, energy and happiness are a true delight. Thanks Luba...I love my mirror and will be back in your studio soon!read more

    Drawing Art Lab ~ Ages 7-14 ~ Fall 2019

    $132.00Add to Cart

    This course provides young students with an exploration of basic materials and elements of drawing. We will use different drawing media such as pencils, pens, pastels and charcoal.  Young artists will learn about the elements of drawing by engaging in observational (still life objects), imaginative drawing (from their imagination) or by using the drawing prompts (photos or images).  There will be time for working independently as well as enjoying the collaboration with other students playing drawing games.

    This series of classes is great for anyone who enjoys drawing and wants to improve their hand-eye coordination and technical skills.

    Wear appropriate clothing as some media may be hard to wash off.  All materials are included.

    These classes are for students interested in exploring different paint media such as watercolours, acrylics, oil and textile paints.  Young artists will practice mixing colours while maintaining the purity of colours and controlling the amount of paint and water/meduim for better visual results. We will focus on the qualities of paint including mixing and application to surfaces.

    This series of classes is well suited for young artists with or without previous painting experience who want to have an introduction to painting media and to practice their technical skills and gain more confidence.

    Wear appropriate clothing as some media may be impossible to wash off. All materials are included.

    This course offers young students an exciting time to experiment with art mixed media such as collage, printmaking, abstract painting, papier – mache and recyclable art out of found objects.  These classes are a fantastic outlet for students who are tactile and like to get expressive using their hands and get into gooey stuff.

    All materials are included in the price of the course but students who wish to personalize their projects can bring materials which have special meaning to them.

    Wear appropriate clothing and prepare to get messy.
