Youth Classes & Camps

If you are looking for enriching art activities for children, The Glass Studio 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. You have a variety of formats to choose from, including drop-in Art Activity Days held once per month, formal classes for youth to learn on their own or have bonding time with a special adult, and summer day camps. And when the kids are through in the studio, they’ll have a work of art for the ages that won’t crumple and fade. You can register for classes now or call us with questions at 920.751.4658.
