Painting On Glass with Jeff Zimmer

when 10 April 2017 - 14 April 2017
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 500

This course is about 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. We will use hand painted enamels, photo-sensitive sandblast resists and printed transfers. We will begin with exercises and assignments, and will progress to creation of one or more personal pieces. Our experience will be enhanced through discussions and presentations. We will also discuss how creating a 3-D image affects its content and our experience of it. The course will be of interest to individuals looking to expand their practice into a new dimension. 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.
