Dobrila volunteering at Aspira Haugan Middle School in Chicago

A couple of weeks ago our talented Dobrila Pintar took the time out of her crazy busy schedule to spend a day with a few kids at a middle school in Chicago and teach them about glass bead making. A few days ago there was a wonderful "Thank You" letter in the mail from the school and some great pictures from the eventful day. See them below and stay inspired!

" I want to thank Dobrila  Pintar, designer, for being a guest jewelry artist  for a day who without being paid wonderfully  demonstrate her craft in the art classroom at Aspira Haugan  Middle School in Chicago, on March 28, 2013 .
 The students were curious, engaged and inspired.

Her demonstration included fire and melting glass sticks into beads and other shapes such as fish and hearts for jewelry making. The presentation was sophisticated and a few students were able to melt glass into a fish or bead.
We arranged a small display with your work in our school, and beautiful samples are shining, decorating and reminding us on your visit.
  A big thank you from our students, staff, Principal Rodriquez, and us, sponsor teachers;

Dobrila Pintar, One Year Later....

Hello to our our friends, supporters and jewelry lovers! We are happy to announce that our blog will be resuming on a regular basis very soon! Meanwhile, we hope all of you have had a fantastic year!

2012 was a great time for glass artist Dobrila Pintar! In October 2012, she was acknowledged with the honor of being named A Featured Artist of 2012 Chicago Artist Month! In addition to all the events associated with that honor of excellence, Dobrila participated and exhibited her unique jewelry at numerous shows, such as One of A Kind Show and Sale at the Merchandise Mart Chicago and Lincoln Park Art Festival!

To keep up with all new trends and techniques, our talented glass artist took part in numerous workshops with other glass masters and learned how to be even better at creating one of a kind glass sculptures and beads!

Also, Third Fridays Open Studio Events at the Bridgeport Art center turned out to be very successful and popular, and now are a monthly tradition! Check out the art center page at: www.bridgeportart.com
