Expand your practice into a new dimension by creating three dimensional images on layers of glass. We will exploit the transparency of glass and layer techniques and images to collage and create a sense of space using hand painted enamels, photosensitive sandblast resists and printed transfers. Beginning with exercises and assignments, we will progress to create one or more personal pieces.
Our experience will be enhanced through discussions and presentations, including how creating a 3-D image affects its content and our experience of it. Those new to painting on glass will learn both the basics of the craft and novel applications, while those with experience of image-making on glass will learn to see their work in a new way.

When & Where
UrbanGlass is dedicated to furthering the use of glass as a creative medium, through studios, classes, publications, exhibitions, and events. We offer a comprehensive education program for students at every age and skill level - from children to working artists - in a variety of techniques, including kiln casting, lampworking, mosaics, and stained glass. Over 500 students a year come to study and work with faculty that includes world-renowned artists and designers. UrbanGlass serves as the primary studio of over 200 professional artists and designers.
Founded in 1977 by artists Richard Yelle and Erik Erikson as the New York Experimental Glass Workshop, UrbanGlass was the first artist-access glass center in the United States and is now the largest. Previously, those interested in working in glass could only do so at art schools, in factories or by building their own studios, but when UrbanGlass opened its doors, glass as an art medium became widely available.
