We are hosting our Fall 2019 mosaic art workshop schedule from early October thru November.  Please email Kim to have your contact information added to our list for future updates and schedules.  Thank you!

Learn the fine art of mosaic technique and styles taught by internationally acclaimed mosaic artist KIM EMERSON who has been creating mosaics since 1991.


Our mission at the San Diego Mosaic School is to educate and inspire everyone about the medium of mosaics as a fine art.  Every level of mosaic experience is welcome.  All you need is a passion for color, texture, an openness for creativity, and originality.   We focus on cutting, placement of “tesserae”, color and design composition, while comparing the ancient Roman and Byzantine mosaic styles to the contemporary while using many different types of beautiful materials.

KIM EMERSON is a San Diego, CA, USA based artist who specializes in the medium of mosaics. Her work is large-scale, architectural, environmental, in the form of 2-D murals, 3-D sculpture, small format jewelry, and fine art studio/easel creations. Kim has a lifetime of experience in the visual arts, with a BA in art history, an MS in historic preservation of architecture, and an AA in interior design. She is a natural educator with the ability to reach students at all levels of their experience. She has created and installed many public art and private residential projects. Her work can be found in private art collections throughout the United States, Mexico, and Italy. Starting in 1991, Kim began learning and making mosaics with internationally acclaimed artist James Hubbell while she was a young volunteer building schools in a very poor barrio of Tijuana, Mexico. She crossed the US/Mexico border from San Diego every week for three years to work and create mosaics involving members of the community from both sides.

Kim has been an active professional member of the Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA) since 2004.

Each mosaic art workshop includes all materials, use of quality mosaic tools, an extensive list of where to purchase mosaic supplies, 14 hours of serious mosaic art instruction, a deli-style lunch, and more!
