Visiting artist Jason Chakravarty will teach you the fundamentals of line drawing on glass, which you'll fire and frame.
Black enamel and primary colors will be available to get you started with float glass. This can be taken as a one-day workshop or you can sign up for consecutive week(s). The first class will get you started drawing with enamels. Consider the additional days as a guided studio for independent projects to be determined through collaboration with Jason.
This class is part of our Visiting Glass Artist Series for June. You can register for Jason's other class here.
Ages 14 and up are welcome.

Jason Chakravarty began incorporating glass through the use of neon into his sculpture in 1998 at Arizona State University. He was employed for four years at a commercial neon sign shop where he learned technical fundamentals of the neon process.
In 2002, he began illuminating hot shop forms and kiln casting glass while attending graduate school at California State University Fullerton. He has taken workshops nationwide including at Pilchuck, Pittsburgh Glass Center, Penland School of Crafts, and University of California San Diego. He has taught neon and kiln casting workshops worldwide.
His work has been shown in more than 100 exhibitions. Currently his work is represented at Adam Blaue, Corning, Duncan McClellan Gallery, Habatat Galleries, Hive Contemporary, Kuivato Gallery, Penland Gallery, Piece and Vetri Gallery. He is a full-time artist and splits his studio time between Arizona and Washington.
