Interest in Creative Workshop’s Stained Glass art class

By Larissa Masny, Gallery Buzz Editor

One of our Facebook fans expressed interest in taking our Winter 2010 Stained Glass art class at Memorial Art Gallery’s Creative Workshop.

Stained Glass starts on January 13th from 6:30-9:30 pm and there is plenty of room! Here is the course description for those interested (you can sign up to be a Memorial Art Gallery member at the same time you sign up for an art class, so you can get the big MAG member discount):

32288 Eight Thursdays, 6:30–9:30 pm, January 13–March 10 (no class February 24) [taught by Nancy Topolski]
If you’ve ever lost track of time staring at stained glass windows or marveling at the work of Louis Comfort Tiffany or John LaFarge, we encourage you to try your hand at this traditional technique. In a relaxed and productive studio with an experienced helpful teacher standing next to you, you’ll learn safe, effective techniques for designing and creating stained glass projects (small windows, boxes, suncatchers, lampshades, kaleidoscopes, even jewelry). You’ll soon be cutting glass, using a grinder and soldering your own work. The costs of materials (glass, solder and equipment) will differ for every student but instructor can help you work within your budget (think $50 or less). Supply list available at registration. Fee: $216 (Memorial Art Gallery members $194) To register, or for more information, call 585-276-8959.

The Facebook fan wanted to know feedback from past students of this class. Here is what they had to say from the same class taught this past fall by the same teacher:

“Great class, great teacher.”

“I learned how to make stained glass, I thought it was great! I’ve been able to transfer my graphic design background to designing stained glass. It was fun.”

“I learned a lot quickly and could use studio time as desired. Great class!”
