About The McMow Art Glass Institute:

Changing Lives Through Art Glass Education

Our program is designed to use art as a form of therapy and education. Art therapy, sometimes called creative arts therapy or expressive arts therapy, encourages people to express and understand emotions through artistic expression and through the creative process. In addition, we have developed a program which features the key elements of STEAM education including math, science and basic art education components taught alongside traditional glass techniques.

The McMow Art Glass Institute is here to provide complimentary therapy through art glass techniques.


Children at Title One/Low-Income Schools
Individuals diagnosed with Autism
Veterans, with an emphasis on individuals coping with PTSD
Individuals in recovery from drug & alcohol addiction

Our program includes art glass education & therapy through stained, fused and mosaic glass classes, including the opportunity to learn from visiting master artisans.
