SiNaCa Studios School of Glass and Gallery


October 2017
Greetings,

If you didn't have the opportunity to come by the studio for fall gallery night you missed some amazing work by visiting artist Grant Garmezy. He created a panther head and bull head during the evening. Images can be seen HERE.

During our recent "Artists In Heat" event, we kicked off our annual membership program; the proceeds will be used towards our 2018 operational expenses. It's not too late to be a part of this! Go to http://www.sinacastudios.org/memberships/ to find out more and to add your generous donation to our growing number of sponsors and members! 

One of our favorite events is the Beads of Courage Bead Challenge. We had a wonderful turn out this year and made some great beads that will be given to children in the program. It was also inspiring to see members of Beads of Courage come say hello and learn how their beads are created. 

Like great craft beer, or want to show off your best brew? Make plans to join us for the Pride of Southside Homebrew Invitational (POSHI) on October 28th. Info can be found HERE.

Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to seeing you soon!

Join us the second Friday of each month from 6p-9p as we host an open studio night at SiNaCa. This is your chance to find out more about the "magic" that goes in to creating glass art. As the artist creates their work we give you an interactive play by play, so you can understand better  why they do what they do. Our on site gallery showcases our featured artist to give you a close up view of what they create. Its also the perfect time to find out how you can get involved in learning how to work with glass.

If you want a more in depth learning opportunity we have 6 week extended programs in the hot shop, and 3 week extended programs in kiln forming that give you a greater understanding of the different ways to manipulate glass.
