    The Art Glass Center at Glen Echo is a school, resource center, and gallery for kiln-formed glass serving the Washington metropolitan area.

    The center is directed by glass artists-in-residence who are committed to both teaching and creating art. These artists, as well as other faculty, teach classes at the center that range from beginning kiln-formed glass to master classes for advanced students. Classes include fusing, kiln casting, mosaics, jewelry, and Venetian glass bead making. The Center produces several exhibitions each year featuring the glass works of emerging artists, studio artists, faculty and students. It is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization that provides education and support in the development of glass art and artists.
