In celebration of our 40th anniversary, we are offering a week-long Encounter with Glass for artists and glass artisans of all experience levels. The students who attend will encounter a variety of materials and techniques in glass, while receiving hands on attention and instruction from Pearl River Glass Studio artists. The week will be a collaborative educational experience where we share our knowledge and passion for glass art. Along with instruction, each visiting artist can tailor their week’s activities to suit their own interests and style of self-expression. The facilitators for the week will be Andrew Young with advanced design rendering techniques, Joy Abedikichi with creating kiln-formed glass imagery, Rob Cooper with glass painting techniques, and Jonathan Simms with multimedia experimental etching on glass.
