Instructor: Michael Endo

In this class you will have the opportunity to explore several glass painting techniques, including painting with high-temperature enamels; drawing and painting with glass powder and frit; cut sheet glass layering; and the use of unconventional materials for mark-making. All of these techniques will be combined into multi-layered paintings that feature pictorial as well as physical depth. The imagery is created through layers, giving each painting a depth not possible with conventional painting techniques. You will leave the class with technical samples and a final 4-5 layer project that will be created over several days.
