Hot Glass for Heroes Program
Please note: At this time we are accepting applications, but will not offer this program again until the spring of 2022. You will be contacted when the program dates are announced.
In honor of those who have served our country, First City Art Center is launching a glass scholarship fund for veteran and active duty service members. Studies have shown that glass programs are especially valuable for military veterans- improving cognition, physical dexterity and building confidence. The teamwork aspect of glassblowing also fosters the camaraderie that service members and veterans already share.
Hot Glass for Heroes is scheduled to start Spring 2021, and each $75 scholarship allows a participant to experience a one-hour hands-on glassblowing class.
We ask that you join us this Veterans Day to help kick off our fundraising efforts, giving our veterans a creative outlet with the potential to transform.
Donations to the Hot Glass for Heroes Program can be made here.
