Since this was drawing with glass, we used powders, and different sizes of frit. The overall lesson was developing perspective, color variation along with the different chemical compositions of glass and the reaction they would have when they are fired together.
Over the last three days each student made several pieces of art. I was able to bring home 4 of them home, while the other two are in the kiln overnight.
There were several nice things about this class other than learning a new technique. I had recently met a lady that does glass and pottery during an art show in the spring of 2016, and we hit it off and have become friends. I told her about the class and she decided to take it with me, so we took turns driving each day. When you have good company the hour drive each way didn't seem so long. The other nice thing was that I knew six out of the eight students that were taking the class, so conversations and joking around came easy. Oh yeah, I joined the glass guild again. One more thing, Matt Grones is a a fairly new owner of A&A Products (18 months). Prior to his ownership, it was only a glass supply distribution center. Matt has created wonderful work station that is very spacious for each artist to work. He is new to hosting classes and he is a very gracious host. Also, he couldn't have picked a better teacher to teach this class! I wish him much success.
