Kids Connect2glass

Price: $45 | Ages 5-16 | Prerequisite: None

Our Kid’s Connect2Glass Workshop will give your young’un the opportunity to do something artsy, educational and fun while working with our instructors in the Kiln Forming Studio. In this 1-hour, hands-on, glass exploration workshop participants will learn to cut and layer sheet glass with glass frits and stringers to create one of the offered items. We will then put the assembled work into an electric kiln where it will be fired over a 12 hour cycle to melt the layers together. While the lasting memories will be available immediately, the items created won’t be ready for pick up until five business days after the class.

You can choose from one of the following items to create (seasonal items will vary). Click the link to view the options. Click Here.

Youth Glass Club

Price: $1,000  |  4:15pm-7:15pm  |  Ages 13-19  | Program Size: Min 4 – Max 12

SiNaCa Youth Glass Club | Sampler is a 12-week (36 hour) program that is specifically designed to be offered to middle and high school students (ages 13-19).  This program is an amazing introduction to all of our studios that gives students the opportunity to expand their education and artistic experiences with glass art.  Students will learn valuable skills, form strong friendships and discover their amazing creative abilities while learning about the fascinating physical properties of glass and the rich history behind studio art glass all in a fun, friendly, safe environment.

Participants are hands on with the material through every session while practicing a wide variety of hot and warm glass making techniques; glass blowing, sand casting, kiln forming, cold working and flame working, and leave this program with unique works of glass that will make their portfolio, college application or desk shine.  Program sessions are led by local teaching artists and will focus on several engaging subjects while introducing beginning techniques of glass art creation through item/project based teaching.  Students may be split into smaller groups based on age and experience.  For first time participants, we will focus on basic techniques with predetermined projects.  Whereas, returning participants will have the opportunity to build on their earlier experiences to increase confidence while working in the studio to work toward personal artistic goals.

Students will also participate in a group project that will be auctioned off during one of our fundraising events.  Proceeds from the sale of this project will go toward the SiNaCa ACE fund.

All glass, materials and supplies are included.
