Students enrolled in GlassWorks Young Adult Summer Program have the opportunity to design and execute a number of multi-media projects incorporating a variety of studio areas.
Week-long sessions have a strict student limit of 25 young adult, with a 3-1 student to teacher ratio. While attending the GlassWorks Summer Workshop, young adults experience the camaraderie of team work as they learn new, innovative skills with materials and equipment they have never before been exposed to.
Under the guidance of GlassWorks? master faculty members, students begin their instruction in layout and design, as well as technical skills involved with kiln fired glass/slumping, stained glass, glass bead making and lampworking, sandblast etching, welding and soldering, copper enameling and engraving, printmaking, and paper and book arts.
Each student enjoys hands-on experimentation throughout the entirety of each project at the unparalleled learning environment of the New Orleans School of GlassWorks and Printmaking Studio. As the designs completed by summer workshop students incorporate so many different techniques, each project enables young adults to broaden their engineering and design skills, drawing and rendering, and hand-eye coordination. Students returning to GlassWorks from previous years are challenged to create their own designs, integrating at least two different media, further increasing expertise in the creation process.
Projects incorporating a variety of media are encouraged, involving each student in all of the resources available to them at this specialized, excelled arts workshop. Well crafted, visually stunning finished pieces, and experimentation with new skills are the objectives put forth to all campers, setting the stage for remarkable pieces students may take home at the end of their session.
