2015 Kasia Mosaics US Tour - Nomad Artists Take the Show on the Road!

An artist and designer duo from Boulder, Colorado are setting out on a nomadic and artistic journey all through out the US. Kasia Polkowska and Kyle Cunniff are taking their love of mosaics on the road, bringing their highly demanded ‘Stained Glass Mosaic Workshop’ to many parts of the US which typically would not have access to this kind of opportunity.

During the tour, they will teach workshops in over 30 states. In the course of a weekend, their students will gain the knowledge and confidence to independently continue their mosaic journey at home. Each student, no matter what level, will leave the class with a skillfully completed mosaic artwork sure to impress friends and family!

Living in Boulder for the last three years, this couple has seen their fair share of van living employed by the many climbers living at the foothills of the Rockies. These athletes enjoy the freedom of not being tied down and are able to follow the best climbing routes with the changing seasons. Hiking through the mountains, surrounded by inspirational beauty, Kasia had an epiphany, “Why can’t artists do the same?”

This winter, Kasia and Kyle will head South bringing their classes to Texas, Louisiana, Florida and so on as they slowly inch up North with the warming weather.  Five months in, at the height of the summer, they will end up in Maine and then start switching back up Westward through the Canadian Rockies to reach Alaska! They will then explore the Pacific Coast, heading south to continue their educational tour through Washington, Oregon and down to California.  As the weather will begin to cool, Kasia and Kyle will bundle up and keep on keeping on, teaching through out the Southwest, the Midwest and finishing the tour in the MidAtlantic back on the East Coast where their joint adventure began when they graduated Pratt Institute in 2006.

Gearing up for hitting the road at the end of February 2015, Kasia and Kyle have organized an Indie-Go-Go Campaign: "Kasia Mosaics US Tour 2015 - Teaching Mosaics" Help make it happen for this dynamic duo by contributing to the campaign which is aimed at funding the conversion of a bare cargo van they are purchasing to make the tour possible.
