Accelerate your skills into the “I didn’t know I could do that!” realm. Students will be challenged to focus and actively problem-solve your technique alongside dealing with simple design problems in an intensive, easy to understand environment. From gathering to bubble set-up and finishing, the goal is to acquire an effortless “less is more” approach with consistency and quick output as a priority.
Skill-building drills, teamwork, drawing, collaboration and hard work will reinforce methods employed. At the same time, through research, discussion and practice, students will solve design problems with a critical eye and make adjustments with newly acquired hand skill. This course is perfect for those that are looking to advance their hand skill, produce more in less time and have a strong interest in design. Students should have a strong understanding of basic glassblowing techniques.
Housing is available at CIA's Uptown Residence Hall.

Join us for the 2nd exciting week at Praxis and use their unique facilities to explore dyeing wefts (yarns woven perpendicular to the warp using a loom). Students will learn Kasuri, the Japanese technique for binding and dyeing the weft which will integrate with Ikat warp from week one, creating images and patterns completely unique to this process. Materials will be provided for the warp and students who participate in ‘week 1-WEFT’ will have the opportunity to combine warp and weft designs for a truly elaborate and cohesive project. This is a great opportunity to learn the very basics of loom weaving or to gain exposure to dyed wefts for weavers of all levels.
Young Artists Photography
This class will encourage creativity through photography. You will be introduced to key elements of photography including composition, portraits, landscapes, and more. Through experimentation and demonstrations, you will create images and begin to understand the medium as an art form. Emphasis will be placed on enjoyment, fun, and creativity. Please bring your own camera – any point-and-shoot model will do.
