Collection Connection Workshop: Contour Line Drawing on Glass

Contour Line Drawing on Glass at the Springfield Art Museum

Join Museum Assistant Brian Fickett for an art-making workshop inspired by Elizabeth "Grandma" Layton's "Curling My Eyelashes" in the permanent collection of the Springfield Art Museum. This workshop allows students to familiarize themselves with the art of enameling (the ancient art of fusing glass to metal). Participants will create graphite line drawings on prepared light plates and then fire them in a kiln. Ages 16+

These staff-led workshops inspired by select objects from our permanent collection feature gallery discussion, hands-on artmaking, and experimentation with a variety of processes and materials used by artists. Our outstanding collection of over 10,000 objects belongs to you, the citizens of Springfield! Discover a new treasure each time and let it spark your next great idea, conversation, or creation. These workshops vary in price; all materials are included.
