We LOVE glass, but we also enjoy working in other media. Sometimes I feel that trying something different makes me more inspired for my glasswork or I can even try the technique in a glass version. We've held a couple of private mixed media get togethers and they were so fun we decided to offer a few on select Friday nights! Workshop includes one piece unless noted. Yummy drinks included
Each workshop $25! Registration required (to make sure we have enough supplies)
New Workshops coming summer 2017
Yard/Garden Stake $48
Standing nearly 2 feet tall, these will be a beautiful addition to your yard AND you can leave them out year round!

OPEN STUDIO: We often have open studio available for those who have taken our Fusing Fundamentals class. You MUST call ahead for Open Studio 636-724-0288. If you do not call ahead, there may not be space available.
Mixed Media Workshop, 1 session, $60
*PIC COMING SOON! Next mixed media day will feature CRACKLE PASTE projects! A fun filled creative adventure that does not involve glass (but is sure to inspire your next glass creation)! Work on two abstract mixed media pieces; layering, stamping, stenciling, and painting. I know I need a creative boost every now and then and mixed media usually does the trick for me. This relaxed workshop will include demonstrations and explanations for use of materials such as gesso, fluid acrylics, pastel sticks, etc. Participants will need to bring various size paint brushes, sponges or sponge pouncers and any stencils/stamps they may want to work with. The wood substrates, papers, paints, pastels, etc will be provided by Art Glass Array.
Sunday May 20th 11am-2pm(ish)
Girls Night Out: Mixed Media Style!
It only happens once a year. Reward challenges, giveaways, food and friends. The sole survivor will win a $500 gift certificate to Art Glass Array! Here's how it works: Arrive between 7-7:15pm on Friday June 29th and prepare to work in open studio making great glass projects throughout the evening. The individual left when the event ends will win Survivor. The event will end by 2am (YES, that's 2AM). If multiple participants are still working at 2am, the other survivor members will cast their vote for who "played" survivor the best (actively working on projects, participating in challenges, etc.). There is a nominal $35 fee to register for Survivor to cover the firings of your glass projects. The glass used that evening must be from AGA, purchasing and bringing in glass from other companies will disqualify participants in the chance to win the $500 gift certificate.
