On this Arizona Gives Day you can make a huge difference for improving the quality of glass art education in Southern Arizona.
This year your donation will be focused on the neccesities that make glass art possible on the most fundamental levels. This includes the tools, supplies, and repairs that will continue to make our studios a valued resource locally and attractive to artists and visiting artist on a national level.

Sonoran Glass School is now in its 15th year of providing Southern Arizona with a place to learn and practice all the disciplines of glass art, including furnace glassblowing, kiln-firing, and torchworking. As our organization ages, we need your help to keep our equipment and tools up-to-date and in good repair. 

At the beginning of the school year SGS launched its $15 Makes a Difference campaign in recognition of our anniversary. The support people like you gave allowed us to improve our accesibility ramp, update lighting, and repair a number of studio kilns. Your gift makes a real difference, and there's still work to be done!


Program Supplies

We’re blessed to have a very popular Youth Education Program and some grant funding to provide classes at little to no cost to youth who face adversity. That funding doesn’t extend to things like tools, classroom improvements, and project supplies.

Kiln Repairs

Kilns are essential to almost all forms of glassworking. Our kilns see a lot of studio action and need new parts and repairs to keep them performing reliably and efficiently.


General Facility Repairs & Improvements

Many improvements and repairs need to be made around the property, including repairs to the evaporative coolers for the summer months, leaks, and other improvements, repairs, and replacements.
