Teen Hot Glass- Furnace Working: Young artists of all skill levels are welcome to join this fun, exciting, and hot summer camp. Students with no experience will begin by learning how to create work in the shop safely. Once comfortable in the shop, participants will transform molten glass into objects such as solid paperweights as well as blown items like drinking glasses. Artists with prior experience will work at their own pace with our instructors, producing objects they have made before to encourage self guidance and leadership through the process, as well as attempting new and challenging techniques. Students will be grouped together based on experience levels. Every student receives one on one attention while handling molten glass. Students are encouraged to work together while teamwork and creativity are emphasized in this positive working environment. Open to ages 13-17, all experience levels.
Designed with the young artist in mind, Pre-Teen and Teen studio intensives build foundational skills, stretch creative limits, teach new techniques or refine existing skills. Each class provides an opportunity for in-depth learning and experimentation in a specific medium under the guidance and mentorship of a professional teaching artist. Studio Intensives are held in the mornings and afternoons so young artists have flexibility to include art in their schedules. Select one morning and one afternoon option to make a full-day, or choose one class for a half-day option. Receive a $60 discount when you register for a full-day of glass programs (including fusing glass), or $40 if you pair your class with another medium.
