The Works Artist In Residence (AIR) Program is an exciting way to enhance The Works Glass Studio by welcoming two experienced glass artists each year for three-month residency periods. Artists are from diverse backgrounds with varying craft expertise, and they showcase their talents in a hands-on teaching environment. Each new artist brings new classes, techniques, educational opportunities, and glass art to the museum and community.
