I had a cool opportunity this morning to check out the new 'Hot Shop' room at the Flint Institute of Arts. The room is incredible as was the glassblowing demonstration. This is fun for adults and kids, and guess what? You can see it for yourself Saturday, April 21st free of charge.

The demos will run on the hour between noon and 5:00 pm. Seeing this today first hand blew (no pun intended) me away. Brent Swanson, the Glass Program Director is such a talent. If you have always wanted to see this art from first hand or or even attempt it  yourself, you can. There are now classes available for you to learn glassblowing.

The day will kick-off with the official ribbon cutting ceremony of the new facility at 10:30 a.m. It really is impressive. For the complete schedule of events, click here. I am definitely  looking forward to going back. Prepare to be amazed. Enjoy!
