Lesson Plan - Advanced Art Glass Techniques

Current lesson plan being offered.
Next session begins in March.


Cost: $280 per 3 hour session, 8 students per session
Location: Holy City Art Glass Studio

(Each Class includes ALL of the following techniques)

Glass Engraving

Each student will have the opportunity to engrave a “star” cut into a pre-beveled piece of glass in the same manner as Waterford Crystal is cut.  The students will be taught the correct way to design, hold, and engrave the glass bevel.  They will learn the art required to hold the glass to the wheel along with the correct pressure for creating beautiful cut patterns in the glass.

Glass Painting

The age-old art of glass painting – the same as stained glass church window makers of the middle-ages will be taught.  Each student will learn the tracing technique of high fire painting, the middle fire enamel technique and will be shown the lower fire silver staining method.  These glass painting procedures are taught exclusively by the staff of Holy City Art Glass – considered some of the finest painters on the West Coast.

Kiln-Formed Glass

Make your own kiln-formed glass "objects d' art" using glass frits, powder and hand cut pieces of glass. All of this will be melted in a selected form by each student using techniques exclusively developed by Holy City Art Glass. This is our most popular segment.


You will leave having created three (3) separate pieces of glass art.  Brilliant-Cut Bevel, Hand-Painted piece of glass, and a beautiful glass tile.  You will have also learned each one of these above techniques by some  of the foremost glass artists in the world.


Classes will be held on Monday evenings and Saturdays. Due to kiln heating requirements classes must have 8 students registered or we reserve the right to reschedule to another time to allow for a full class count. To schedule your class please email us at scheduleglass at comcast dot net
