Create a handmade glass treasure for your home or transform tiles into a beautiful piece of mosaic artwork ― the choice is yours!

As art forms, glass and mosaics have gone hand in hand for centuries. Churches dating back to the middle ages had their ceiling adorned with intricate mosaic artwork, while stained glass covered the windows. Today, both glass and mosaics provide a unique outlet for artists who have a flair for complexity, colors and shape.

Experience these age-old artforms and create something beautiful. Glass and Mosaics classes are held at Columbia Art Center and welcome new and continuing students.
