Beginning Glass Fusing & Paper Sculpture
This beginner level class will offer information and guidance on basic glass fusing using proper skills that can be applied to future work. Students will choose to create either 1 medium (6 X 6 inch) or 2 small (3 X 3 inch) pieces. Safety, the rules of warm glass, simple 2D design and color principles will be emphasized to help foster a successful creation. The pieces will be fired off site and will be available for pick up at a later time
Level – Studio: art for all skill levels who want to learn art techniques, have fun creating, & develop personal style

Holly Schineller, a resident of Tempe, Arizona, attended both the California College of the Arts and Arizona State University to complete her Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art. Visual Art is her means of processing the inspiration she finds in nature, the sciences and mathematics. For the last six years her commercial work has been focused on warm glass including functional serving pieces, trophies and architectural installations. Her work resides in businesses, public institutions and private collections. Holly teaches beginning warm glass classes around Arizona and joined the team at the Scottsdale Artists’ School in the Summer of 2014. She spends the majority of her volunteer time in the artistic and nontheistic communities focusing on raising questions and inspiring people to think creatively. Her work also includes drawing, painting and the ephemeral art of street painting. Holly enjoys getting people excited about Science and bringing its beauty to the street. “The pastels allow me to create images and express ideas I can’t always convey in glass.” You can see some of her glass on the facebook page Life With Art or her street painting work on facebook page Holly Grounded.
