Teen Vacation Workshops

The MFA and Diablo Glass School have collaborated to offer Teen Vacation Camps. Located just blocks from the MFA, Diablo is easily accessible by foot, car or public transportation. Diablos facilities offer glass blowing, flame working and kiln forming studios. All camps start with an introduction at Diablo and then a tour of the MFA's glass collection. At the MFA, we discuss the history of glass, different techniques and artistic inspiration. After that, the teens return to the studio to start their intensive glass studies. Teens chose between Glass Blowing and Flame Working and in the afternoon, they all work in the kiln forming studio to create fused glass pieces.

Four-Day Intensives: Monday-Thursday 9-4

The Teen Glass Blowing and Flame Working camps all start at Diablo, then a tour of the MFA, lunch, followed by the groups separating into the glass blowing and flame working studios for the remainder of the first day. For the next three days the students meet in their studios at 9 and work until 1, at which time we break for lunch. After lunch, the groups meet in the kiln forming studio to work on their fusing projects.

Ages 12-18

Teen Vacation Week: Glassblowing & Fused Glass
Price per workshop: $650

Class size limit: 9
Teens who are interested in working in a team atmosphere with a lot of physical activity will enjoy working in the glass blowing shop. Diablo’s experienced instructors will guide teens through a series of demonstrations and hands-on exercises to build their understanding of the medium. There is a three students to one instructor ratio in the hot shop to ensure safety and plenty of individual instruction. First, students will learn basic glass manipulation by creating a paperweight. They will move on to learn how to introduce air into the piece to create a bubble. From there, students can make glasses and small vases. In the afternoon students will move into the kiln forming studio. There they will assemble pieces of glass that they will heat in the kiln to create a fused piece of glass. Their first assignment will be to make some pendants. They will learn basic glass cutting techniques, along with kiln forming and color theory to create coasters and plates.
