Our Teen Art Workshop was so much fun! Jack is the new art teacher in the school district and he plans to have two workshops next summer! The kids really enjoyed the park and was the inspiration for their work!
A Huge Success!
Glass Workshop Taught by Donna Sarafis
Several days of hard work paid off for the students once the glass project was complete. All were rewarded with a glass art piece beautiful enough to hang in any gallery.
Donna has taught workshops at her own studio and at Affinity Glass (formerly Hot Glass Houston). We are proud to include Donna's workshop at the Orchid Tree Gallery. The best news is that Donna and her husband, John, are new residents to Fayetteville! They recently sold their home in Huntsville, Texas and purchased a beautiful cottage in Fayetteville. We hope to have more workshops with Donna and we'll keep you all posted on the next one!
We have a beautiful display of Donna's work in the Gallery. We invite you to come out and see her work in person!
Landscapes with Donna Sarafis!
“Landscapes are everyone's favorite, but they also require the most experience! For those interested in this workshop there is a prerequisite of glass experience and some drawing and/or painting experience. This large panel will require all of the techniques that we use to create a piece of glass that looks like a painting! Most of our large panels are approx. 14 x 20 or larger, so come prepared to be challenged and work hard!” –Donna Sarafis
A winter landscape is a favorite among Donna's students and this one was a challenge but well worth the time and effort!
Birds! Birds! Birds!
Instructor: Donna Sarafis
Donna's favorite! This will be an exceptionally large panel, simple, elegant and Asian with a twist! Lots of birds! This will be a challenge and limited to only 7 students.
The fall workshop with Donna was indeed a challenge but the results were fabulous!
Mosaics for the Soul!
“We love to combine cut, dimensional pieces into our mosaics because...after all...we are fusers! So this wonderful, large panel will incorporate so many aspects of what we teach. How to create dimension; how to decorate with stringer and shade with frits; how to grout a glass mosaic; how to use transparent and opals, and much more. This piece will not have koi as the picture here, but I'm really considering birds or a floral...either will be beautiful!”
Due to a small class size Donna hosted this workshop at her studio in Fayetteville. The finished piece by one of the students is beautiful!
