GLASS Summer Workshops



  <http://files.ctctcdn.com/d7e46b98001/5154abc7-3caf-486c-86e2-a7cb92db243d.jpg> Embracing new ideas and ways of making is the foundation of our summer workshops. It's a time to be inspired, invigorated and 

challenged both during the course and beyond. Artists of different 

backgrounds, ages and skill levels work together, exchanging ideas with a common goal of learning and growing.


Our workshops are offered in 5-day and 3-day-weekend sessions, covering different disciplines plus high-school student options.  Our instructors are practicing artists of relevance, and many are faculty at prestigious art workshops, colleges and universities.  Their experience and enthusiasm is inspiring, and they highlight a wide range of possibilities for making.
