Kids "Turn Hot Glass into Cool Stuff!"
FIRST STEPS

  • Before accepting your child as a student, we will assess your child's readiness, hand-eye coordination, ability to follow instructions, and maturity.

  • This assessment will be done during an introductory "Make-A-Bead" or "Make an Icicle" mini-class where your child will work one-on-one with Vicki Schneider, licensed NYS teacher. The fee for this mini-class/ assessment is $20.

  • At the end of the mini-class, Vicki will confer with you and your child. We only will proceed with private classes if everyone agrees.

  • Expressive Glass will only accept those students who the instructor believes has the potential to work safely and successfully.

Develop your child's curiosity, creativity, and confidence
​WEEKLY CLASSES

  • Typically, students study with Vicki for an hour a week. 

  • They will learn how to work safely at a torch and will create various glass pieces depending on their skills and interests.

  • Students will progress at their own pace and will record the skills they learned at each session.

  • A parent or responsible adult is required to accompany the child 
         for each lesson.

  • Fees for private instruction are $40/hour and include all glass 
         and the use of tools and equipment.
