• Overview

    "The mission of GlassRoots is to transform lives, especially of underserved youth, by fostering life-long learning and creative self-expression through the wonder of glass-making."

    GlassRoots was founded in January 2001 with the belief that communities can be transformed and elevated through the arts. GlassRoots knew that the youth of the community held enormous potential which could be realized if only they were empowered with the gift of creative self-expression.

    GlassRoots isn't just for youth. Glass can transform the lives of adults as well! Our talented Teaching Artists and Visiting Artists offer 'art for art's sake' classes and workshops on evenings and weekends in all of our glass shops. Artists can lease the use of our facility and equipment for production of their work. And items made by our talented staff, visiting artists, and our students are available for sale or commission in our Studio Gallery and online.
