Without artistic expression, humans would bottle up their feelings and toss them into nearby kiddie pools. Let out your feelings safely with today's Groupon: for $59, you get two glass-art sampler classes at Victorian Art Glass (a $150 value). Classes are on Wednesday evening from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., and students will take their two classes on one of the following date pairings: January 12th and 19th, February 9th and 16th, or March 9th and16th.
Victorian Art Glass's homing beacon wrangles neophyte, advanced, and wind-swept glass artists and sets them on a free and easy course toward refractive expression. Providing brand-quality equipment and tools, as well as studio space and classes, the facility aims to provide a "loving home for artisans," and they've teamed up with local glass artstitutions such as DeBrady Glassworks, Master Artisan, and Glass Campus to administer their two three-hour sampler classes. Therein, experienced glass artists will instruct novices by example, touching on a variety of techniques and effects, covering topics such as fusing and slumping glass, stained glass, and verbally abused glass. In addition to 25% off of supplies and 25% off registration for future classes, Victorian Art offers a free full day of studio drop-in time, which includes independent, unfettered access to Victorian's studio space and equipment.
Victorian Art Glass
Dennis Brady and his glass-blowing brood do more than supply Victoria with a steady stream of colourful crystalline pieces. They also impart the tricks of their trade in easy-to-understand classes, lectures, and workshops. Artists and curious common folk can take advantage of Victorian Art Glass's expansive art experience, which allows visitors to experience several different types and textures. The studio's many kilns for rent or other tools such as the sandblaster help produce intricate designs into smooth surfaces to practice for a new gig as Jack Frost. The glassomancers' educational programs emphasize the business end of artistry, with numerous classes aimed specifically at improving one's marketability.
