This multi-day workshop focuses completely on portrait painting. Basic knowledge & glass painting skills are required. 


During this workshop you will learn how to paint multiple layers before firing it in the kiln, how to work with various painting mediums, the usage of different colors and how to correctly apply shadow/depth. We will work on three portraits in various styles. There will also be the possibility to work from your own photo or design.

''If you are serious about painting in realistic style on glass, don’t delay and take Ellen’s class!
Her understanding and mastery of glass painting techniques are outstanding. She is methodical and clear in her teaching. The class flow is well laid out and accessible. Expect manageable pace and lots of “aha!” moments.''
