Youth Classes & Camps

Give your kids the opportunity to play with glass… safely! The Glass Studio at Bergstrom-Mahler Museum of Glass offers classes and camps for youth ages 5-15 years old taught by professional artists and teachers. Our classes are a safe and affordable way for kids to have a fun learning experience with glass art. The Glass Studio offers a variety of formats to choose from. We host formal classes for youth to learn on their own with kids their age. Family classes offer an opportunity for young ones to make art with a loved one or adult family member. We also offer summer day camps for kids of all ages. After class, they’ll have made a work of art that won’t crumple and fade.

You can register for classes here, online, or call us with questions at 920.751.4658.

IMPORTANT HEALTH NOTE: Due to current COVID-19 guidelines from the CDC and Winnebago County Health Department, face masks are OPTIONAL inside Bergstrom-Mahler Museum of Glass. Thank you for your support.
