Programs

School Program for K12

Passion for Glass offers a unique art glass workshop for children from grades K –12.

Children will be introduced to the history of glass in art, glass structures and different techniques of working with glass. The medium of glass will be a vehicle to introduce students to the Elements and Principles of Design.

This workshop will provide a unique opportunity to learn how to work and cooperate with others. Through this, students will plan their projects and set attainable goals, work through the project and reflect on their work together.

Safety is an integral part of the workshop. Working with glass has its own particular safety requirements. These safety procedures can be transferred to other mediums in art and everyday life.

Through these lessons students will also tap into their own creativity and have a better appreciation for this art form.

I look forward to the opportunity of working with these students!

  

 

Kids Programs at the Studio

Check our calendar for “kids open studio times”.  

We are dedicated to exposing young students to the creative possibilities of glass. We offer students ages 10 – 18* a range of developmentally-appropriate classes, camps, private parties, and more. See what your child can create in glass.

Younger children are welcome only if accompanied by an adult.

Projects include:

  • Make your own a one-of-a-kind glass butterfly! Use a variety of glass materials to create the likeness of your favorite butterfly, or design a new species in this introductory glass fusing class.
  • Design and create an adorable woodland, monster or bug creature using a variety of fused glass components. Your creature will have a copper wire that can be used as a stand, or to hang- whichever you choose! Feel free to bring ideas or drawings as inspiration.
  • Adult-and-child: Bring your young artist and create glass art together! Use a variety of Bullseye Glass materials to create one-of-a-kind fused glass portraits of yourselves or each other

*A guardian will need to sign a waiver that states the child is allowed to work with glass and that the child will follow the safety process.

         

Murals

Passion for Glass can help schools and organizations produce unique, one of the kind collaborative glass pieces made with glass art from students or members. These pieces are a great way for schools and organizations to celebrate anniversaries, major events or just to create a memorable team-spirit project.

 

Passion for Glass can work with your school or organization to create art pieces of any size. Sizes for group projects can be as small as a plate to as big as a large wall hanging. We will design the collaborative piece with you then work with your group members to create their individual pieces. After the individual pieces are complete, Passion for Glass will combine them to create one beautiful piece. We will then help with installation if necessary.

 

Prices vary depending on the size of the project and the number of participants.
