Kids Design Glass LIVE
2-7 p.m. Sunday, March 30
Join the local winner of the Kids Design Glass drawing contest as his/her design is turned into a glass sculpture by the skilled artists of the Hot Shop Team at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington. The winner will Skype with the glass team live in the Figge Art Museum auditorium, and we'll watch as the winner's design becomes a piece of art. Two sculptures will be created—one for the child to keep and one for the Museum’s Kids Design Glass Collection.
Kids Design Glass Contest
Don't miss this amazing opportunity! Make a drawing at Family Day that could be turned into a glass sculpture by a Hot Shop glass artist at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington. One young artist from the Quad Cities will have his/her drawing selected.
This is the first time MoG is collaborating and opening the Kids Design Glass project to another museum. Contest is open from February 1-22, 2014 to youth 12 and under.
Drawings may be made on plain 8 ½” x 11” paper. The completed entry form should be attached to the back of the artwork. Written notes about the design may be written to the team if desired (ex. height, color, etc)
Entry forms are available at the Museum Store, in the Family Activity Center, and online. Entries may be turned in at the Museum Store during regular hours.
Applications may also created and submitted in the Figge Studios on Free Family Day, February 22.
Please note: Artwork should be your original idea, and NOT include TV or movie characters. Entries will not be returned to the artist. You can make your entry during Family Day on February 22, or stop by the Figge on another day to create your entry.
