MOLTN Teen Glassmaking Sampler
April 16 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm$100

Pre-registration is required. Scholarships are available.
MOLTN is a great introduction to our SIO2 Youth Arts program. SiO2 is a hands-on glass art program for young artists grades 6–12 taught in one of the top glass studios in the U.S. SiO2 students create glass art, learn the scientific principles behind glass and apply the life lessons inherent in studio glass art such as teamwork, discipline, communication, leadership, achievement and respect. Pittsburgh Glass Center offers 10- and 12-week after school programs in the fall & spring, and a one-week summer boot camp in July.
