Choose from Five Options

In the Intro to Fused Glass class, glass manipulators create any of two semitranslucent items including jewelry, plates, and coasters. During the Intro to MIG Welding and Metal Sculpting class, students meld metals before using a plasma cutter, as well as hand and power tools, to slice metal. The class imparts skills to make basic repairs to cars or forge an original work of industrial art.

Students will receive all materials necessary for a take-home creation and can retrieve their works of art after their class, or three days later for fused glass. Flame throwers aged 13 and older can take each introductory class, in which complimentary light snacks are provided. Younger artists ages 5–12 can create fused-glass art and a mixed-media painting in their own age-appropriate class.<p>

Rossi Sculptural Designs

Gina Rossi's art comes to life in a flurry of sparks and cauldrons of heat. A self-taught artist and certified metal-inert-gas (MIG) welder, her work incorporates fused glass, paintings, and organic metal figures, and has been featured in the Sacramento Press, as well as KCRA Channel 3 news. When she was young, Rossi's forays into art and imagination provided stable solace from her tumultuous and oft-troubled childhood, and her passion eventually flowered into a full-time endeavor. Through her growth as an artist, she adopted a trash-into-treasure approach, working with recycled metal and glass, and earning notoriety for getting Oscar the Grouch evicted to craft a piece from his former home. Her regular welding and fused-glass-art classes share her talents with eager students, as do her efforts with community art projects, which empower young, disabled, and elderly people to make their creative mark in the world.

Gina is very thorough in her instructions. she is a lot of fun and motivates you to have fun and be yourself through art.
Sara R. · June 18, 2013
Gina is great! She did a great job of explaining the class and the tools we were working with. And she allowed us free reign and use of the material she had on hand. I'm looking forward to taking other classes from her.
