Mobile Glass Studio
Keystone College prepares fine arts students for specialized careers in the field of glass making. The College’s on-campus glass studio, featuring all the equipment and technology needed to produce fine works in the artistic medium of glass, is regarded as the best in the region.
Keystone can take its glass making capabilities on the road with a Mobile Glass Studio for use at local schools, festivals, conferences, and concerts.
Our Mobile Glass Studio in action.
Hot-glass learning at local high schools.
The Mobile Glass Studio, the only one of its kind in the region, is complete with its own glass furnace and all the component parts of a working glass studio. The Studio provides high school students with a unique opportunity to experience glass making. In addition to the artistic and aesthetic aspect of the process, students learn some of the chemistry and physics principles behind the heating and molding of raw materials used to make glass objects.
School districts participating in the mobile-glass program:
- Blue Ridge
- Forest City
- Lackawanna Trail
- Mountain View
- Tunkhannock Area
- Wayne Highlands
- Western Wayne
“We expect this will be a unique learning experience for local students in a variety of ways. The process of making glass not only involves great artistry but important scientific principles.”Ward Roe
