Everyone knows the story of Peter Pan. Or at least, everyone thinks they do. But unless you have heard it from Tinker Bell's point of view, you really have not heard it at all. A new twinkling light shines on all the characters you love including Wendy, the Lost Boys, Peter Pan, Smee, and the nefarious Hook from a feisty fairy's point of view.

Theresa Reer and Jen Vaughn are Wounded Warriors and Veterans undergoing treatment as patients of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The Walter Reed Society has a successful multi-year collaboration placing students in art glass activities. The students come to the Art Glass Center’s studio in Glen Echo Park to develop their art skills as they readjust to civilian life. Art Glass Center’s staff offer instruction in fused glass art to small groups of Wounded Warriors and Veterans. The experience involves creating designs and choosing colors; selecting, cutting, and grinding fusible glass; and hand-crafting glass artworks for fusing in an instructor-operated kiln.  As students’ skills progress, instruction is given in forming more complex glass shapes for two-dimensional art pieces, and in creating three-dimensional glass art. Individual creativity is a key element of the environment.
