GLASSPAINTING FOR ARTISTS
August 21-24, 2013, Readsboro, Vermont
Learn to paint in a totally new medium. Or, loosen up and expand your existing glasspainting methods. Discover techniques that allow for a lively, expressive painted line and how to control/modify transparency without losing the sparkle of the glass.
Learn how to mix, thin, and apply lead-free paints onto colored glass using propylene glycol, an inexpensive, non-toxic, slow-drying medium that allows for an endless variety of mark-making and textural effects. Print glasspaints with lace, plastic, rubber stamps etc. and create faux textures such as stone, wood, fur and fabric.
These examples show the same image painted three times with different tools and application methods. Formal group exercises are part of the curriculum for this workshop.
Most students will work on pre-cut panes of colored glass (exceptions will be made for those who have previously completed my Stained Glass Design & Cartooning workshop).
Class size is small, tuition individualized. Maximum class size is 6. Classes run from 9am-4pm with an hour for lunch. The studio is open extended hours from 8am-8pm for independent study.
This 4-day glasspainting workshop costs $585 per person. Includes lunches and a materials fee. All levels may apply, from beginners to professional artists in any medium.
