what our students are saying

One of the best things to come out of the pandemic was that it made learning online more commonplace. I took Tim Carey’s Painterly Portrait class through Bullseye Glass in January of 2021. After losing my father to cancer in December, it was cathartic for me to create a portrait of “My Father’s Eyes” while learning Tim’s methods of painting in glass. The instructional material coupled with the online sessions and videos made learning his methods very simple and achievable for artists at any level.

I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to expand their creative palette!

In July of 2021, I had the privilege of taking Time Carey’s on-line Painterly Portrait class.  I have been fusing glass for 25 years and the techniques presented were nothing I have even heard of or could imaging possible.  The class was fun, so informative and very clearly presented.  If you have seen Tim anywhere you know his teaching is going to be fun, a little off the wall (in a good way) but totally transparent and nothing held back.  

I am a watercolorist as well as a fused glass painter; but I hate doing portraits, so I went a different direction.  The techniques presented can apply to any style you prefer.  I was more than pleased with the outcome of my pieces. I believe any fuser at any level could benefit from this class.  Tim presents endless possibilities for painting with glass.

Thanks for expanding my fusing knowledge and skill.

I took Tim Carey’s online Painterly Portrait class during the height of the pandemic. I live in Alaska. Perhaps ten years ago we had nationally renowned glass artists like Richard Parrish, Linda Steider and Nathan Sandberg come up to teach 4 day workshops, but that arena has dried up and no longer happens. So I jumped at the option to take Tim’s class. It was a huge cost saving not having to travel and find housing and besides nobody was really going anywhere anyway. We were all jonesing for things to do! The class was broken up into two classes with well described process interspersed with a lot of humor (and even some failure which for this amateur glass artist was so refreshing to see. Sorry Tim) The time between the two classes was perfect for getting our pieces done and then returning to get critiques and Q&A time.

Definitely worth the money! Tim is a great teacher!
