Hello and Happy Spring to All.....
John and I are finally past the worst of the recovery from his triple bypass, and he is doing amazingly well. We are very thankful for that. We have decided to add new classes to our schedule for the spring and summer. Everyone who brings a friend to take the class gets 10% off of their class! Remember, however, that we can always set up a class just for you and the cost is the same.
We are especially excited about our Landscape classes! The picture on this newsletter is of 1/3 of a mural that is 48" x 30" in size. Each piece is 16" x 30" and depicts a meadow w/the large oaks and wildflowers. We've titled it, "The Great Oaks of Texas." In our Landscape workshop, each student will learn to create a landscape approx. 15" x 22" in size in 3 days. We also have a Mini Landscape class that will teach you how to do a smaller (10" x 15" approx.) piece in only one weekend. Please, don't think that you cannot do this because you have no background in art. That is part of what we teach...it is technique, and that can be learned!
Bullseye Glass Co. calls this "Painting w/Light" and that is exactly what it is. You CAN learn to do this w/no previous experience. Our classes are small, and that allows time to teach each student in detail. Read our testimonials!
New Workshops: Please look on the website for details about the workshops and times.

WOW! A large piece of glass....just imagine a 15" x 22" (approx.) piece of beautiful glass, and you get to cover it w/a beautiful landscape scene! It is called "Painiting with Light." How wonderful is that? Using some mosaic techniques, frit for washes, stringer for detail, cut glass for dimensional effects, and so much more, you will create a beautiful piece of art. How? We will discuss elements of good design including light, perspective, and color to name a few. You can do this! You will work hard. You will learn so much. But it is so much fun....come join us and see!
In Aug. we are offering a really special deal for our previous students. Every Sat., you can come to our studio, pick a small project, pay for the glass at our cost, and use our studio to make your project. All you will pay for will be the cost of glass and a small firing fee. John and I will be available to assist w/your question.
If you have any questions, please call us at 936-291-0975. We hope to see you soon!
John and Donna
