In this two-hour class, students will explore the self-portrait. After looking at examples of fine art self-portraits and discussing proportion, physical characteristics, and expressed emotion, they’ll draw a 4×6 self-portrait on paper. Next comes an introduction to various forms of glass and how they change through firing. Then, using their drawing as a guide, students will translate their self-portrait into glass using sheet glass, frit, stringer, and confetti on a base of pre-fired sheet glass. Pieces will be fired after the workshop and available for pick-up a few days later. The finished piece will have an embedded wire loop at the top for hanging.
This workshop is based on curriculum developed by Sandra Gross and Emily Repp of Brazee Street Studios.
