Pieces of Me is Elaine Matsushita's foray into the world of mosaic making.
Elaine attended classes at the Chicago Mosaic School to learn this artform and found a new appreciation for "learning pieces" in addition to masterpieces.
She took the 8 week long multilevel mosaics program ($275.). The school also offers open studio time (for students who have completed a class), which is a perfect opportunity for small space dwellers to do some serious craft work without having to live with the mess.
