No experience is necessary and all materials are included.  Open to students ages 12 and older. Parents are required to complete a flameworking waiver before their child can attend.After-School Art: Intermediate Flameworking/Glass Beads for Teens- You've got the basics down, now let's play!   Students will build on the skills they learned in our beginner flameworking classes.   They will take their glass beadmaking skills to the next level, with techniques such as advanced encasing, complex and twisted stringer work, as well as detailed stringer control for intricate dot work, masking and layering. Students will learn to incorporate raw metals and silver glass chards to add depth and dimension to their beads.  They will be encouraged to bring their own ideas for self-directed projects and to test their advancing skills. Please note, this is an intermediate class, for students who are comfortable and competent on the torch. For students who have never taken a glass beadmaking class (or who prefer a refresher) we offer a beginner workshop. Parents are required to sign a flameworking waiver before students can participate.  Open to students ages 13 and older who have taken previous flame working workshops.JEWELRY, METALS AND MORE!  - (Ages 8 and up)- Sign your child up for our week-long journey into art and we promise you won’t hear “I’m bored” even once!  There will be a new project each day- from jewelry, metal-stamped backpack charms, collages, photo frames and suncatchers to mobiles, mosaic lanterns, resin trinket holders more!  A nut-free snack and drink will be provided each day.  FLAMEWORKING/GLASS BEADMAKING – April Vacation  (Teen-Ages 12 and up)- Is your child looking for something unique and different to do this summer? How about sending them to the “hottest” camp around?
