This class will be aimed at glass artists with painting experience, but without the confidence/specific experience to tackle re-painting work. Students will study numerous styles of stained glass painting, based on the Munich and English studios. The students will be able to choose from head, drapery and canopy examples, which they will be able to study at close hand and learn the techniques needed to replicate the styles. Although this class will be based on replicating old pieces, the techniques discovered will help in the creation of new painted glass works. Includes transportation from hotel to studio, lunch, and all materials.
