2016 GLANC Supported Events

Our major funding for 2016 went to the student scholarships at The Crucible, and providing support for youth programs at Public Glass. We provided scholarships for 3 students to take glass blowing classes at the Crucible, and made a contribution to the Light a Spark youth program at PG.

Providing financial support to further the education of students in the glass arts, is an important part of what we do, and critical to keeping the glass arts alive in the community.

In 2016 we participated in various events sponsored by GLANC:

  • A tour of the Palo Alto High School glass program
