Figurative Foundations in Glass

Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

Spend a week in the studio for one of our intensive workshops. You’ll get an immersive experience learning new creative processes and techniques, while utilizing CIA’s two-story, light-filled, state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. Each workshop is led by an internationally recognized visiting artist. Workshops are scheduled from 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday, with some evening studio time available. Sign up online by Friday, May 17. Students should come prepared with some working knowledge of general studio protocol and safety procedures.

This workshop will cover the basic skills needed to make figurative art using the flameworking torch. Students will learn to sculpt the human form through a series of step by step exercises. Special attention will be given to working on the gesture and expression of each figure. 

Carmen Lozar will lead the workshop. Carmen completed her undergraduate work in crafts at the University of Illinois and received her master’s degree from Alfred University in New York.  She shows her work throughout the United States and is represented by Ken Saunders Gallery in Chicago. She loves to travel and share what she knows about working at the torch and has recently taught in Turkey, Italy, and New Zealand. She lives in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois where she maintains a studio and is a member of the art faculty in the Ames School of Art at Illinois Wesleyan University. View more of Carmen's work at
