Event Description In this meditative and fun class, you will be working with handmade textural ceramic tiles as well as a wide variety of glass tiles, glass gems, stained glass, mirror, and ball chain to create a 16” mosaic mandala. You will become immersed in the symmetry and flow of this circular form as the creating becomes a form of meditation. On day one, we’ll discuss color theory and selection of color palette. Then we’ll go over design possibilities and you’ll see samples of how to incorporate materials into a visually appealing piece using a variety of textures, sizes, and shapes. Glass cutting skills will be taught. You’ll learn how to use sticky mesh for laying out your design, and how and why to use Wedi board as a substrate. On day two, you will complete the design of your mandala, mix thinset mortar to set your piece on the wedi board, and then mix, color, and apply your grout. Using waterproof wedi board and high fired clay tiles will allow you to hang your mandala outside.

Event Description The San Dieguito Art Guild, a non-profit group, hosts the 2018 Mother’s Day Weekend Art, Garden & Studio Tour. This is a self-guided, driving tour on Saturday and Sunday, Mother’s Day weekend, May 12 and 13, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm each day. Tickets are good for both days and homes may be re-visited. Take your mom or best friends on a leisurely tour of the 8 North County homes where you can peek into an assortment of fascinating artists’ studios, peruse more then 30 unique exhibits of locally made art, and relax in each unique coastal garden. Artists from the San Dieguito Art Guild will be positioned in the gardens — showing and selling their paintings, ceramics, glass, gourd art, fiber arts, photography, jewelry, and much more. Free refreshments will be served at every stop. The tour includes an eclectic group of homes, gardens and art studios from Encinitas to South Carlsbad, including a perennial favorite which will be featured in the May edition of San Diego Home & Garden Lifestyles magazine. This two-day event is the major fund-raiser of the year for the San Dieguito Art Guild. Tickets are $30 per person and may be purchased, after April 15, at the Off Track Gallery (937 South Coast Highway 101, Suite C-103, Encinitas), at OffTrackGallery.com, or at each home both days of the tour. Children 17 and under are free. This is a favorite tour of many San Diegans — many of whom take this tour year after year.
