Glass Blowing

A concentration in the visual arts.

If you have ever wanted to learn glass blowing or study glass art, then check out Keystone College visual art programs. Our Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts with a concentration in glass is intended to prepare art students for specialized careers in glass and the field of glassblowing. Students will exhibit an understanding of glass forming processes through projects and assignments that challenge the student’s creativity while perfecting skills. They will demonstrate critical analysis skills through group discussions, verbal and written reviews of glass work produced in and outside of class using a shared vocabulary that communicates aesthetics and ideas.

Mobile Glass Studio

Keystone can take its glass making capabilities on the road with a Mobile Glass Studio for use at local schools, festivals, conferences, and concerts.
