Welcome to Amber’s Artistry

An Artist’s Journey

Welcome to the Spring Course Schedule, my friends!

ALL classes have been closed until Sometime in 2020 due to the quarantine and social distancing efforts in effect throughout the US and specifically San Diego County.  I can’t wait to create with all of you in the future -possibly in Fall – that is our aim! Hang on, be safe, wash those paws, and stay healthy!

nancy's rooster windowWelcome to creating with glass on glass!  Using 1920’s vintage windows removed from homes in the heart of San Diego, we will create amazing works of mosaic art upon the glass of the windows.  For this class we will be focusing on creating a floral scene of some type and/or a graphic abstract design.  These artworks will consist of stained glass, found objects, and ceramic – they will be grouted (not leaded, as in “stained glass”) and provide a unique room divider, patio privacy screen, or window hanging for your home.

As always, you are welcome to bring items tWindow classo include, however it is not necessary as my courses are all inclusive and all materials are provided.  This course is 2 full days of creating your artwork and unlike other courses, I will grout your artwork for you.  A large vintage window is provided to each student, all  materials are included, and students should arrive prepared with a design/idea in mind (please discuss and identify with me before class date).
