Glass is an exciting medium that uses a balance of light source and color. Dramatic results can be achieved regardless of artistic capability or experience. Italian Glass Art has held a great reputation in the world. In this course, basic history, design and techniques will be addressed, with an emphasis on skills and technique. The copper foil method by making a sun catcher is studied to later become familiar with leading by constructing a small leaded panel. You can expect to complete a third project of your choice: a small lamp, jewelry box, panel, clock, accessories and many more.

The course provides instruction in unique techniques such as Tiffany Style stained glass, mosaics, fusing design and techniques, along with business theories in the glass industry. During the final semester, students are encouraged to challenge themselves with a more complex project, in the use of glass, design and techniques. Unlimited opportunities are provided to explore original design, three-dimensional projects, and incorporating various levels into the Diploma Project.
