General Master Class Information

Self-Arranged Transportation Options for Off Site Locations: San Francisco claims to have the best public transportation system on the West Coast!  CAEA is promoting traveling like a local - using buses, cable cars, or streetcars - while at the conference.  Given the abundance of public transportation options, limited parking and the city’s compact size, CAEA will not be providing transportation to off-site Master Classes this year.

“Art has always been a part of my life as I was lucky enough to have a father who is an artist.  I started out as a teacher who taught art, for 40 years, at the high school and university level.  I am now an artist who loves to reach.  Since the mid 70’s I have been working with glass, working with cool glass, stained glass, and then later moving into warm glass and fused glass.  From the first I was hooked.  I am fascinated with the effect of light coming through the glass and the way the colors play against one another. Since retiring from full time teaching my studio has become the most important room in my home.  Nothing makes me happier then experiment and creating with glass. Currently my husband and I are building a gallery/studio on Donner Summit in the Sierras for the work I create.  My website is www.nancyoglass.com

This is the perfect class for anyone eager to learn how to create their own glass art that is also affordable and accessible for the classroom grades 4 to 12.  Each participant will make either a fusible glass mosaic or a cement coaster mosaic.  Participants will learn how to cut glass to a pattern, use mosaic glass nippers and master the glass masher to create a 6X6 masterpiece using their own design or one provided by the artist. All safety equipment, glass, frit, cement, molds, tools and random supplies needed for use in the class will be provided.

"Homelessness is not only a San Francisco problem.  Anyone who has seen the vast swaths of makeshift shelters on the streets of Los Angeles or the serge of tent encampments in Oakland - knows that deprivation knows no boundaries" SF Chronicle 12/6/16.

Dede Tisone’s recent work has focused on the Homeless.  Her drawings can be found at dedetisone.com and have appeared in newspapers including the San Francisco Chronicle and the San Francisco Street Sheets.  She uses her skills now as a tool for social justice and considers herself a “Visual Journalist,” and an “Activist Artist.” Dede is a retired public school teacher.  She received Fulbright-Hays Summer Fellowships to both China (1991) and India (1999) and achieved National Board Certification in 1996 in the area of Adolescence and Young Adulthood Art.  For twenty years, she taught in public schools in Menlo Park and Mountain View, California, was the Director of Bay Area California Arts Project, and a mentor teacher for the California New Teacher Project.  In 2014, she facilitated the writing of the Visual Arts Standards for AERO, a project supported by the U.S. State Department's Office of Overseas Schools.  For her full bio, go to:  http://www.dedetisone.com/workhistory.html
