Aquatic Life and River Rocks with Mark Hufford
We are very excited to be welcoming the amazing Mark Hufford to CGG to teach his first courses outside of the US!
In this course students will learn to replicate nature’s beauty in river rocks using glass and UGC fired glass enamels and products. Discussion will include choosing the correct color combinations, topical applications using other products for details prior to firing and implementing them in projects with nature scenes, plaques, and decorative bowls. Students attending this course will also be granted access to a closed Facebook page that Mark dedicates to sharing additional applications, design ideas and support that is ongoing.
Mark Hufford is an Artist, Instructor and Graphic Designer whose passion for the arts began at the age of four when he first put pencil to paper. While Mark is an accomplished Artist in many mediums, his early love of graphite not only endured but grew. After years of limitless exploration into the layered subtleties of graphite drawing, along with his experimentation and development of various techniques, he yearned to share what he had mastered with others. His unique method of teaching is not to simply arm students with technical skills. Mark’s greatest joy is in guiding his students to see the world through brand new eyes as they awaken to the nuances that surround them in the simplicity of everyday life. His focus provides students with an increased level of awareness and a refinement of their observation skills enabling them to create truly realistic work.
Originally from Perrysburg, Ohio, Mark Hufford currently resides in Austin, Texas with his husband Patrick and their two fur babies Klaus & Leisel. He obtained his Bachelor of Science Degree in Graphic Arts from the Art Institute in 2012.
