Welcome to Mosaics by Michele, where breaking things is encouraged! I’m Michele Patrick, an award-winning artist and teacher working in the Seabrook, Texas area, just 30 minutes south of Houston, Texas. Whether you’re looking for a custom mosaic or a fun, informative mosaic class, you’ve come to the right place!
I enjoy teaching and it brings me great joy to watch people, who thought they weren't creative, discover that they actually are! Regardless of your experience or objectives, my personal and fun teaching style will help you feel relaxed and inspired.
WHAT IS A MOSAIC?
Great question! A mosaic is the art of creating images made from the assemblage of small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials. The majority of my classes use stained glass for the projects as it provides the widest range in colors, as well as an even surface for grouting.
HOW DO I MAKE A MOSAIC?
By taking one of my classes! Let’s be honest, it’s one thing to watch a longer-than-it-needs-to-be mosaic YouTube video, and a whole other thing to get your questions answered by an experienced teacher. Another important aspect is meeting like-minded people; where you’ll be able to learn from their questions, as well as any experience they may already have with mosaics.
I’ve been creating mosaics for over 25 years and I’m often asked, “How did you start doing mosaics?” If you’re old enough to remember the show “Trading Spaces,” that is where I got the inspiration to try mosaics. Of course, on TV they always make it look like it takes 5 minutes. I soon learned it does not. Even so, I was hooked the very first time I tried it and you will be too!
WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN ONE OF YOUR CLASSES?
Fun! That’s first and foremost! And, knowledge of course. I realize that some people come to my classes simply looking for a fun time, while others come looking to gain knowledge. I offer both and keep my class sizes small to assist with individual needs. So, what do you get for the price of admission?
Fun… especially if you bring friends!

Small, personal size class
Your very own, one-of-a-kind masterpiece!
