In the third quarter students will be introduced to Boro glass, a higher temperature glass, which they can use to make hollow forms and small sculpture.

Teen After School Beginner Glass blowing (12w Wed 4:15 to 6:15) $870
In this 12-week program, teens will focus on building their skills and understanding of hot glass. This is a great course for a teen that has taken Diablo's Teen Camp or the first time student. In the first quarter, Diablo's teachers will drill the basic skills of gathering, blowing, and tool handling. Second quarter we will concentrate our skills on making a set of matching drinking glass. In the final quarter students will be given the chance to move into the sculptural world, beginning with a variety of decorative bit techniques on larger vessels. A series of group projects will occur through out the 12 weeks. From there we will see where their imagination takes them.
