Overview

As part of the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Craft + Material Studies program, our Glass concentration allows you to engage with the ideas and concepts that drive your art through technical instruction from accomplished artists. Your in-studio instruction will be hands-on, yet rooted in investigation of meaning and content.

Topics covered include the use of color in glass, two and three-dimensional surface treatment, the relationship between volume and skin of forms, blowing into molds and working in a variety of scales. Projects provide you with broad exposure to the many possibilities inherent in the medium.

Students who complete the Craft + Material Studies Major with a concentration in Glass will:

  • Demonstrate independent, creative problem solving and original thinking. They exhibit a distinct and personal approach to art making.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of contemporary issues and historical precedents. They have an appreciation for experimentation/innovation as well as for the traditions of making as applied to contemporary craft practice.
  • Acquire and demonstrate the professional skills needed to be successful as artists, entrepreneurs, designers for industry and productive citizens.
  • Be able to talk and write about art (including their own work) critically, intelligently and with considerable insight.
  • Acquire the level of technical skill required for them to reach their career goals. They establish a work practice appropriate to their ideas and demonstrate a deep familiarity with materials and processes.
