Glass art has a long history of partnering designers and craftsmen to create beautiful masterpieces. Glass Axis would like to invite your school and students to participate in this long tradition. This spring, Glass Axis invites children, ages 6-12, to be a designer, while we provide a glassblower to bring their drawing to life. Our exhibition Fantastical Creatures will feature 8 sculptures made by Glass Axis artists, accompanied by the original designer artwork.

-Students must be between 6 and 12 years old.
-Each child may submit one color drawing of an imaginary creature, accompanied by a story about the creature, and the creature’s name. SEE ENTRY FORM BELOW
