Learning Fire Youth Program at Terminal City Glass Co-op
Learning Fire Youth Program at Terminal City Glass Co-op gives students a unique opportunity to learn the art of glassblowing for high school credit.
In partnership with local alternative high schools with students from diverse and historically underserved backgrounds, and with funding from Vancity and the Arnold and Anita Silber Family Foundation, TCGC has created this groundbreaking program to inspire and cultivate the next generation of glass artists in our region; to create access to materials, education, and resources which were not previously accessible to youth.
In 2022, the inaugural year of the program, TCGC welcomed renowned artist Preston Singletary as visiting artist through Learning Fire. Through digital presentations and live demonstration, Singletary shared his experience as one of the world’s most recognized and accomplished glass artists.
