This course is designed to provide beginning students with a core understanding of glassblowing, fusing/slumping, flame-working, hot-pour casting, and cold working techniques. The course is intended for students committed to finding their own voice in any medium of expression in contemporary art through critical thought, technique, perseverance, and experimentation. Students will be expected to demonstrate potential ideas through sketching and/or sculpture in other mediums. The course will include lecture and research on ancient through contemporary glass making methods. Students will have allocated class time in all studio shops as well as 3 hours per week of private practice to complete work and assignments.
