Fused Glass Sgraffito Drawing
March 11 - 13, 2017 (3 days) |
Sarasota, FL
At the Sarasota School of Glass in Sarasota, FL


This intensive workshop will teach you to use glass powders to draw two dimensional imagery in glass. This is meant to be a 'crossover' course, joining elements of fine art and fine craft together. We will explore the traditional ideas of drawing; using a very non-traditional approach, using glass to interpret line, value, contrast, texture. color movement, gesture, and composition. If you think you can't draw, this class is for you! In addition to learning simple 'tricks of the trade' and improvised technical drawing skills, you'll have the freedom and individual encouragement to experiment with ways to use glass to create drawn imagery that tell a story, evoke emotion, and express mood. Previous drawing experience is not necessary, but an open mind and some fusing experience is helpful. By the time you leave you will have gained a new awareness of the visual language that is possible with kiln formed glass, as well as confidence in your ability to "see" as an artist.Additional topics to be covered: kiln formed cane and murrini, collage part sheets for sgraffito drawing, tool making, incorporating color, reactive glass, volume control, firing schedules, and finishing.Call to register: 941 925 4527sarasotaschoolofglass@gmail.com
