The class concept for designs, ideas and images are different and unique per student. Techniques will be covered, but keep in mind, a great glassterpiece is all about planning, thought and preparation. Each student will need to plan to bring pictures of their life experiences including perhaps.....pictures of your home - exterior views, now or when you were growing up. Report cards and or certificates of completion, awards and or a birth certificate. Memories and or a future concept of life perhaps. Photos of yourself, family members or friends. ANY EPHEMERA THAT WILL HELP TELL YOUR STORY. And of course if that is just not comfortable for you, now is the time to make up a great story......you choose the story to tell....this is art, this is what you make it.
Students will create (6) sample tiles to learn and experiment with the printing techniques to then use these learned techniques to then create (2) complete 10 x 10 works, highlighting their own personal history, focusing on childhood and love or whatever personality you choose to represent. Each piece will consist of patterns, colors, and textures, overlaid with images of persons, places, and things, you choose. Overlaid with images of persons, places or things. Students will also mount their (2) finished pieces for hanging.
