Continuing Education . Pre-College Classes 2014 . Pre-College Glassblowing course 

Pre-College Glassblowing course

Glassblowing is very challenging, but the rewards are worth the effort.

This glassblowing class will provide a college-level approach to using glass as a contemporary sculptural medium. You will be encouraged to pursue all ranges of ideas and uses, from traditional glassmaking to glass burn drawings on paper. We will pursue a rigorous routine of technical demonstrations and ideation in an effort to give you not only a solid understanding of the material, but also a sense of what glass means to contemporary art and sculpture. You will leave with a firm grasp of how to use glass and also what it means to be a craft artist and entrepreneur in the contemporary craft world.

Instructor

Chadd Lacy received his BFA from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia and has been the Technical Specialist in the Glass Department at CIA since 2005. Chadd works with blown and cast glass techniques and has exhibited internationally. Check out Chadd working in the glass studio on YouTube—go to CIA Studio Spotlight: Glass.
