Sunday I went out to Rockwall to visit Barbara Dybala and check out her large scale mosaic mural project. They say everything is bigger in Texas and this gal really has a Texan "can do attitude". She is covering her 3 story studio in tile and smalti. If you want to be a part of the fun know that Barb is offering free classes on large scale mosaics. At first when I heard about it I thought what a clever way to get your "fence painted Huck Finn". After just 20 minutes of listening to her orientation I realize she has an amazing wealth of info and she is as generous as she can possibly be with her knowledge. I learned so much about efficiency and production when tackling something on this scale. Barbara studied under Isaiah Zagar and uses many of his techniques.
There is still time to get in on the fun and it really is fun. The space she is creating is magical. Check out her website for more info. This is the last week of open classes so don't miss out!
