    Cost $630 (including materials)

    Beginning level class limited in size to 10 participants

    Take part in this weeklong intensive class to explore large scale enameling on steel. In this class we will draw, paint, airbrush, silkscreen, stencil, and much more with industrial materials on 2-D surfaces.  We will also incorporate traditional jewelry enamels, under- and over-glazes, foils, and the "kitchen sink" of enameling into the pieces to both have fun and create art.  We will fire onto pre-coated specialized steel panels.  We are fortunate during the class to be able to take at least one field trip up to Santa Rosa, CA to visit the factory that makes enameled signs and has worked with many artists over the last 12 years.  In addition to working  with smaller  pieces that can fit into a 20" kiln, each student can work on a larger panel (up to 4' x 4') that will be fired at KVO industries in Santa Rosa.

    This class is especially useful for those wanting to find a great medium that can be installed outdoors as well as used for to create everyday functional objects that can be in limited production or are truly 0ne-of-a-kind.
