SiNaCa Studios School of Glass and Gallery

June 2017

Thanks to everyone that came to our TopGolf fundraiser! We had a great time swinging clubs and raising some money for SiNaCa.

Hopefully you were able to make it by for Open Studio Night. Our executive director, Clifton Crofford was our featured artist. He created two ribbon sculptures during the evening. Images can be seen HERE.  

There is only one spot available for our summer Kiln Forming workshop with Nathan Sandberg. We are excited to host him for his workshop starting June 19th!

Over the past few weeks the exterior of the building has been getting a little TLC. Local artist Donna Lassker has been giving new life to the building, and it's looking great!

The public is invited to a gallery opening on June 10th from 6p-8p featuring work from Paschal High School students. Gallery 76102 will be hosting the event. See below for more information.

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.

SiNaCa Studios offers a variety of ever evolving hot and warm glass programs.  We offer short term classes ranging from 20 minutes to 3 hours in our hot shop (glass blowing studio), kiln forming studio and flame working studio. 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.
