Experience a summer immersed in the glass arts!

For ages 12-17, Sonoran Glass School’s glass art summer camp, Camp Fuego, is the perfect way to spark your creative fire in early June 2019 in Tucson. Work in all of our studios and make beautiful glass art projects using furnace glassblowing, torchworking, and kiln-firing. Students will also take a chaperoned, educational field trip to the Tucson Museum of Art, the Flandrau Planetarium and Science Center, and the University of Arizona scientific glassblowing lab to learn the science behind the art.
