Indianapolis Art Center > Art Classes > Glass

Immerse yourself in the world of glass making, the ancient medium once described as, “Half science, half dance.” The Indianapolis Art Center specializes in teaching beginning to advanced glassblowing classes to the next generation of glass artists.

We offer a variety of class options for students interested in learning about the art of blown glass, including: 7-week and 15-week sessions, private lessons, weekend workshops and one time Pop-Up classes. We are also one of the few hot shops in the country teaching glass arts to children.

Our state of the art hot shop boasts a new furnace and three reheating chambers, as well as a focus on igniting students’ inner curiosity in the creation of artwork.

Beginning
In beginning classes, you’ll learn the basics of glass and develop some proficiency while producing small vessels and solid forms. Class time is divided between demonstration of technique and hands-on instruction. Group projects develop the concept of teamwork and help build your confidence. Courses are repeatable to develop proficiency.

Intermediate – Advanced
These classes are for those looking to refine their technique while learning to make more definitive forms and move into using color applications.

All Levels
An “All Levels” class is for beginning through advanced level students. Our faculty work with you individually.

*For all classes bring water to drink, sunglasses and wear a cotton shirt, pants and closed
toe shoes. No sandals, shorts or synthetics.

Please keep in mind this studio has high heat temperatures. All classes are in the Glass Studio. Participants must have a minimum height of 56 inches to be able to independently look into the furnace, have full vision capabilities,gripping strength with both hands and have adequate eye-hand coordination.
