Glass Art

Associate in Fine Arts

 

The Glass Art curriculum provides students with a carefully planned program of study that focuses on exploring contemporary glass.

The program introduces a multitude of glassmaking processes for glass art students to discover the techniques that best serve their creative ideas. The curriculum includes the instruction of flameworking, glassblowing, kiln casting, fusing and slumping, and cold-construction techniques.

The program emphasizes the lineage of glass-art making, while at the same time, glass art students are asked to push the boundaries of the material as they see fit.

The program emphasizes other disciplinary studies through strong two-dimensional and three-dimensional design courses, art history, and portfolio and professional practice development. SCC Glass Art students develop a strong ability to think and speak critically about glass art through critical in-class discussions, and museum and gallery visits.

Students are encouraged to participate in exhibition opportunities and activities such as SCC‘s International Flameworking Conference and the SCC Glass Club. The glass center has a very active visiting artist schedule with glassmakers from around the world serving as points of inspiration. The glass center’s artist-in-residence Paul Stankard is very active in our glass art program, serving as a mentor to the students.

Graduates of the Glass Art program have successfully pursued Bachelor and Master of Fine Art degrees at institutions such as the Tyler School of Art at Temple University, Alfred University, the Rochester Institute of Technology, Southern Illinois University, the California College of the Arts, and Kent State University, among others.

After completing the program, graduates have gained immediate employment at institutions such as The Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass and Wheaton Arts. Some work for other artists and in production studios, while many have gone on to successfully launch their own businesses or art careers. Alumni have also gone on to teach classes and workshops throughout the United States and abroad.
