GLASS COLLAGE MASTERPIECE

Now available, an intensive class experience focused on every stage of my process in creating beautiful glass masterpieces on canvas.

Students will learn every step of the process: Painting on canvas (or board), composition and planning, gathering your supplies, choosing your glassy materials, how to mix epoxy resin, and what are all those tools? Each step is presented with detailed instruction, class handouts, demonstrations, and lots of Q&A.

Students will leave class with not only a better knowledge of how to work with glass, how to source it, and how to set up their own studio, they will have time to create a substantial work of art!

 

THE DETAILS
