Partnering to bring you this exciting opportunity.
We all know maintaining physical distance from others is the best way to keep ourselves and our communities safe right now. Or perhaps you’re a busy parent or professional (or both!) that can’t possibly take a week away just for you. Costly travel can also be problematic.
With our smaller, half-day weekend sessions, now you don’t have to choose. Utilizing a simple platform for watching, learning and sharing, our live streaming Creating Dimension Masterclass provides detailed LIVE classroom instruction, plus all the social connection we all need and crave. You’ll be encouraged to ask questions, share your opinions and connect socially with other artists just like yourself so we can come together, find inspiration and take the next step in your creative journey.
In this four-week live streaming workshop, you will learn to create thick glass panels that have great dimension and depth; learn how to apply enamel to glass layers and stack and fuse these layers into solid panels. Topics covered include: design and image selection, layout, discussion of enamels and how they respond to fusing temperatures, painting medium, how to mix and apply enamels, fusing schedules, bubble control, kiln loading instructions, finishing techniques PLUS you’ll learn the carefully guarded secret extra techniques to create beautiful, foggy effects that Paul is known for.
Total cost includes 27 hours of instructor led weekend sessions over 4 weeks, professional instruction from an award-winning artist, detailed handouts (including all firing schedules), and twice-weekly office hours for Q&A, problem solving, and progress reviews. All materials (pre-cut glass and pre-mixed enamels), tools, and dams, and a bonus consumables kit can be purchased separately at Coachella Glassworks, and are shipped directly to your home.
