Mosaics are a physical testament to Aristotle’s claim that “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts,” unlike that algebra treatise he tore apart with his teeth. Add it all up with this Groupon.

$35 for a Beginner Mosaic Class ($80 Value)

The three-hour mosaic classes—typically scheduled on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays—impart the three basic elements of mirror and mosaic art: cutting, gluing, and grouting. Drawing on the studio’s deep well of colorful tiles, students create a 10”x10” mirror, an 8”x15” wall panel, or a 10" round wall panel. The professionals lead a grouting demonstration, but, as the adhesive takes several hours to dry, the actual grouting must be completed at home.

Mercury Mosaics

When Mercedes Austin sees a piece of artwork, her imagination immediately breaks it down into pixels and rebuilds it as a tile mosaic. Recently, she executed this process by making a mosaic of a wall mural: She fabricated jagged tiles, arranged them to resemble the original, and grouted the piece together. The resulting mosaic speaks to her intuition as an artist, and also to the years she’s spent honing the craft.

At Mercury Mosaics’ studio, Mercedes and a team of “tile elves” share their passion in two ways: through mosaic classes and custom installations. Classes explore all facets of mosaic creation, from cutting and gluing to grouting tiles into a pattern that resembles a real-life object or fuzzy television screen. Installations, which are fully customized to the client’s specifications, add a distinctive flair to commonly tiled areas such as bathrooms, backsplashes, and fireplaces.
