Keystone College will offer free workshops to teach the art of glass blowing to local high school students.

The hands-on classes will be conducted each Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6-9 p.m. and Saturday afternoon from noon to 3 p.m. from May 16 through June 3. The workshops will be taught by Keystone College glass blowing instructor and artist Jim Harmon. Students will receive personal instruction on how to create their own hand-blown glass artwork. Transportation will be provided from the Marketplace at Steamtown to Keystone College.

The workshops will culminate with the students participating in a glass blowing demonstration on Saturday, June 3 at the annual Arts on Fire community celebration at the historic iron furnaces in downtown Scranton. The workshops are made possible through a grant from Lackawanna County’s Arts Engage Program.

Students from all area high schools are invited to enroll in the free workshops. To enroll or for more information, contact Elizabeth Ratchford at Keystone College, (570) 945-8156 or e-mail elizabeth.ratchford@keystone.edu. Keystone is the only college in the region which offers a concentration in glass as part of its visual arts program.
