What you'll learn in this more art class:

This accessible art class for kiln workers will be of interest to artists such as printmakers, painters, or anyone for whom visual expression in glass is desired. Starting with their own images, photos, clippings, etc., students will examine why certain imagery appeals to them, how to isolate the potency of the image, dissect, vary and ultimately move toward meaningful abstraction. Through drawings, paper cut outs and/or test pieces, students will plan a series of works and complete a project(s). Using Bullseye glass, frit, powder, and stringer, students will be introduced to processes that enable strong composition, rich surfaces and depth. Using multiple-firing processes, students will consider both sides of the glass as well as investigate surface texture.

Topics to be covered in class may include:
  • Getting started: facing the blank “canvas”
    Realism, abstraction and points in between
  • Composition and visual editing
  • Theme and variation
While basic kiln practices will be touched upon, the focus of the class will be on the expressive use of the materials and creating glass art based on the students’ signature work. Prior glass experience is beneficial but not required. Artists of other media are encouraged to enroll.

Note: Deposit of $450.00 is collected to reserve your space in class. The balance of $445.00 will be due February 1, 2018
