CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Teaching our students the "how-to's" and the "why's" of producing a quality stained glass project is paramount at Art Glass Connection. With over 20 years of experience in stained glass construction and teaching in our studio, you are learning from seasoned professionals. When you take one of our many classes, you will be learning techniques from experts in the art of stained glass. The quality of our student's work is a direct reflection on us and our teaching ability. We care about our students and value the time we spend with them.

We guarantee to provide you with an informative, fun and exciting selection of classes and workshops that are geared to all levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Every quarter we publish a new schedule of classes and workshops.

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE FUN!!

We want you to relax and have fun when you take one of our classes or workshops and we want you to be proud of the project you take home when it's over. It is our personal goal to make sure that happens.

Please feel free to call our studio (954) 434-7007, stop by our studio or email us for current classes and dates.

We teach anything and everything about art glass and we have classes in session year round so there is always something to choose from. We take great pride in the ability of our teachers to not only do quality work in glass themselves but to pass that information along to our students in a format that makes learning fun and relaxing.

Below is the long list of the workshops that we teach and it would be impossible for us to be teaching all of these subjects all of the time. So don't forget to BOOKMARK us and check back frequently for updates to our class schedule, or contact us if there is a particular workshop you are interested in.
