SGS provides Youth Education Programs for a variety of Tucson schools. Through glass making, our local high school, elementary, and middle school students learn the importance of communication, coordination, and teamwork. Glass making allows students to gain aesthetic vision and learn how to interact with peers confidently and comfortably. SGS is in its 13th year of Youth Programming. Funding for these programs has been provided by: Arizona Commission on the Arts, Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass, National Endowment for the Arts, The Kitay Family Foundation, Tucson Pima Arts Council, and generous individual donors and families.
Public Art Installations: Sonoran Glass School emphasizes the creation of public art installations in many of our youth programs. The resulting installations provide both aesthetic and practical improvements to their locations as well as the creation of something that students and their communities can own in the long-term.
