Tragicially, David left us way too young, but his artwork and techniques live on through his generous spirit and his permission to teach this technique.
These are some student projects from a previous workshop taught at Art Glass Connection.

STAY CONNECTED
Dear Friends ,

It is with mixed emotions that the time has come for me to announce my retirement from Art Glass Connection and to move on to a new chapter in my journey.

After 21 wonderful years at our location in Cooper City-Ft. Lauderdale, I had hoped to announce that the shop had been sold and passed on to a new owner, but as of today, those plans have not materialized.

Art Glass Connection has been my joy, both my creative and income producing outlet, and a wonderful environment to meet so many of you who have become my friends and family. I am truly a testament to the old adage, that if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life!

Ever since we opened our doors, Art Glass Connection has provided a creative art space for all in the Tri-County area. I am still hoping to find a buyer within the next several weeks. Perhaps, a few artistic friends or family can pool their energy and resources together to keep this special gathering place open to the community?? Call me at (954) 434-7007 for details.

We are proud to say that Art Glass Connection has always set the standard high for innovative and fun classes in Stained Glass, Fused Glass, Mosaics, Resin Jewelry, Lampworking, Alcohol Inks and Jewelry Making. It saddens me to think the AGC tradition will not carry on in southeast Florida.

Tomorrow, I am sending out our FINAL WORKSHOP SCHEDULE for the month of MARCH 2018. Classes will fill quickly so sign up early.

Shortly after that, we will announce our closing and liquidation sale information. So stay tuned!
Thanks for doing business with us, and for your support for 21 amazing years!

Sincerely,

JoAnna Vitale
