Glass A Summer Session 3

Glass Summer Session 3
June 20 – July 1, 2021
Einar De La Torre and Jamex De La Torre

This will be a two-in-one deal: a hot glass sculpting workshop plus a mixed-media workshop. We’ll take turns in the hot-shop, and students will be expected to delve into the mixed-media process when they are not blowing. We’ll meet daily to discuss process in the service of art making. Collaborative assignments will foment discussion. We’ll be available to discuss all aspects of an art practice, including our experience in public art and over 30 years in studio art. The mixed-media component will be as important as the glass for the success of this workshop; it’s not for the blowing-obsessed. Level: students should have a basic understanding of hot glass with a minimum experience equivalent to several weekend workshops. Hot shop.
