This course offers an introduction to image on glass in 2 dimensional and three-dimensional applications. It encourages kiln room and hot shop cross-pollination, fosters an in depth approach to problem solving and collaboration, and supports an intermediate to advanced exploration of glass through individually directed thematic enquiry. Technical demonstrations and courses introduce new techniques, and address the specific needs of individual projects. Original individual exploration is supported through group discussions and tutorials. Students develop a short work proposal, to support extended material investigations that integrate new skills, and highlight their growing understanding of the contextual and conceptual underpinnings for their projects. Occupational health and safety instruction is integrated throughout the syllabus.
