Carmen Lozar - “Cultivating Style (Listen to yourself)”
Wednesday October 12th
10 am to 12 pm

Class overview: How do you make an artwork that is unique and recognizable as your own? In this workshop we will discuss different methods that can help an artists identify and cultivate themes that they would like to realize in glass. A pipe has the potential to become a work of art when the artist chooses to incorporate political statements, personal narratives, or even pop culture into the work. Ms. Lozar will give a brief lecture on her own artistic journey and then invite workshop participants to complete a series of exercises that will help identify and develop their own unique style.

Bio: “The sculpture I create with glass is meant to inspire and provoke imagination. Telling stories has always been my primary objective. Some narratives are sad, funny, or thoughtful but my pieces are always about celebrating life.”
