Carol Shelkin at The Ruins Project

Visiting artist, Carol Shelkin, will be bringing her signature realism in portraiture technique and vibrant teaching style to the walls of The Ruins for a very special learning experience. As with all Ruins work, you will be leaving behind a piece of yourself on the walls of history. Read more about how The Ruins Project works hereTo see The Ruins Project FAQ page, click here.

This four-day workshop stands out as a unique opportunity to work, from the ground up, as part of a team, while creating a site-specific installation. Your teamwork will become a part of the ever-evolving story that started with coal mining and has become a mosaic phoenix rising from the ashes.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to work with not one, but two dynamic and passionate teachers of the mosaic world. Rachel will be on hand to give you a behind the scenes, VIP tour of The Ruins Project and you will become a part of the transformative narrative that is becoming a beacon to mosaic artists from around the world.

$865 for this four-day workshop includes all materials and lunch each day.
