Each step along the way will be illustrated by incredible works of art glass made using techniques that have been passed down through millennia. Participants will learn how, after hundreds of years in the shadow of Italy, France and other international glass centers, the United States became the leader of the studio art glass movement. Learn about the art of Louis Comfort Tiffany, Rene Lalique, Dale Chihuly, Harvey Littleton, Bertil Vallien and many other leaders in the art of creating glass.
