Glass Art

Associate in Fine Arts

The Glass Art curriculum provides students with a carefully planned program of study that focuses on exploring contemporary glass.

The program introduces a multitude of glassmaking processes for glass art students to discover the techniques that best serve their creative ideas. The curriculum includes the instruction of flameworking, glassblowing, kiln casting, fusing and slumping, and cold-construction techniques.

The program emphasizes the lineage of glass-art making, while at the same time, glass art students are asked to push the boundaries of the material as they see fit.

The program emphasizes other disciplinary studies through strong two-dimensional and three-dimensional design courses, art history, and portfolio and professional practice development. SCC Glass Art students develop a strong ability to think and speak critically about glass art through critical in-class discussions, and museum and gallery visits.

    "I definitely have learned a lot about myself here - so far as drive and motivation and just finding the thing that gives you fulfillment. That's what I found here."
