the glass bar glass art classes for kids teens  adults photoHere is your unique opportunity to learn a fascinating new art form!

The Glass Bar is a unique and interactive glass fusing studio, suitable for everyone over 8 years of age.

When you visit the The Glass Bar, you are not “spending time.” You are igniting your inner artist and sparking a new passion!

Believe it or not, the art of Glass Fusing has been around since about 2000 BCE. During the Renaissance period, glass fusing lost its' popularity as Stained Glass swept the charts. It wasn't until the 1960's that glass fusing re-emerged, now glass fusing considered one of the fastest growing art forms.

Glass fusing is the bonding of separate pieces of glass by high heat, administered in a kiln. It’s easy to learn the basics of glass fusing, it’s fun, and the possibilities are endless. There is a vast range of techniques, and we are always experimenting!

New to glass fusing? Don’t worry, you’ve come to the right place. At The Glass Bar, we work with beginners everyday, accessing each individual’s skill level. We have developed a master plan to ensure that each student is calm and confident before we move on. Then, we help each participant find inspiration. We want everyone to feel the excitement of exploring this new art form.

At The Glass Bar, each student will learn how to cut, grind, and shape glass in a fun and safe environment. Our friendly instructors work one on one with your child until he or she is comfortable working on their own. Your child will leave feeling excited with a new skill set and attitude that will last a lifetime.

“Art encourages children to think, developing skills and confidence as they go.”

- Mary F. Kohl, Barbara Zarowski
