GLASS ART EXPERIENCE
Instructor: Dennis Brady
to be held at DeBrady-Victorian Studio Workshop in Victoria BC
Victorian Art Glass has conducted classes for dozens of school groups in our Victoria studio with all the participating kids, teachers and parents thrilled with the experience.
It’s a chance for kids of all ages to experiment with glass art. In addition to making a bunch of fun projects, the experience includes an outline of how glass is made and how it can be used to produce various artistic effects. It could include casting, embossing, fusing, flameworking, and sandblasting. It could be limited to one or two specific techniques or an overall sampler of numerous techniques.
We can design projects and classes appropriate for any age group from 6 to 60. We’ve handled groups ranging from 6 year olds in grade one to young adults studying for a BFA or MFA in university - and all age groups in between. It can be done entirely in our studio or can be arranged for part to be done in the school classroom then completed in our studio. For example, sandblasting has been popular with the students drawing the design and cutting out the stencil in the school classroom then coming to our studio to complete the project in our sandblasting booths.
Victorian Art Glass has a large extensively equipped studio and can handle groups of up to 30. We can even arrange for the chauffeuring parents to be busy working on projects of their own separate from the students. Frequently, we’ve had groups where the kids were making gifts for the parents and didn’t want the parents to see what they were doing.
Educational & Entertaining
More than a chance to make some fun glass art projects, the experience would include an outline of how glass is made and how it is used to produce art.
We’ve had consistently positive feedback from the students, the teachers and the parents with many groups returning for a repeat experience.
