Glass Fusing Camp
Location: Fine Arts Center, Middle School Art Room
Program Description: In this new, exciting art offering participants will have the opportunity to experience the magic of glass fusion. They will select multiple pieces of glass and with the aid of a kiln create a new piece of glass. Once they have mastered this technique, several projects will follow; including a 5" plate, a night light, assorted jewelry pieces, holiday ornaments, and a 4x6 glass picture. Glass fusion is currently very popular in the art world, and along with their new knowledge of this technique, campers will finish several projects that they will be proud to share and display.
