Delcia Litt

You will be introduced to the world of modern mosaics based on classical techniques. I have worked in stained glass and mosaic for 20 plus years. Come learn how to use the tools of the trade and create your own mosaic.

I began my craft in traditional stained glass window panels: John La Farge, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and Frank Lloyd Wright style. I love the Arts & Crafts movement and Prairie styles still popular today and specialize in teaching contemporary mosaics in my home studio in Erie, Colorado.


Kathy Thaden

Kathy Thaden’s award winning mosaics have been exhibited across North America. Inspired by the Rockies and “our fragile earth,” she links her art to her faith – with awe for Creation. Kathy’s mosaics range from abstracts to liturgical wall hangings and commissioned works.

Kathy teaches mosaic workshops and leads mosaic retreats across Colorado and the Southwest. For more information about the classes please visit Kathy’s website:

Betsy Hicks

Betsy Hicks, sculptor and mosaic artist, says  “I enjoy the process of creating artwork that is surprising and causes the viewer to slow down and look at the piece more closely.   Our world has gotten so fast-paced and disposable.  Mosaics allow us to find ways to use these “thrown away” items in fun, fresh ways.  Once you take this class, you will never look at junk the same way! 

I offer mosaic classes on the beautiful East Side Art Institute campus.  For each session, you bring whatever you would like to mosaic; this can be a second-hand mirror, a picture frame, a stepping stone or a table top.  All other material will be provided, including lots of stained glass, tiles, glass bubbles, and more.  If you have something special you would like to add to your mosaic, please bring it!  Old jewelry, charms and broken pottery … all can work.”
