Kiddo Drawings

After a year of uncertainty and myriad challenges, we are excited to celebrate the positive powers of creativity and imagination.

GLASSTASTIC brings together children in grades K-6 from all over the country who submit drawings and descriptions of imaginary creatures and glass artists who turn those drawings into fabulous three-dimensional glass sculptures. In spite of the obstacles they faced, students, parents and guardians, and teachers all outdid themselves spreading the word. We received nearly 800 creatures for our glass artists to choose from, and what a challenge it was for each of them to pick just one!

This year we also celebrate ten years since our very first GLASSTASTIC exhibit in 2011, and the show is bigger and better than ever. The exhibit features 27 sculptures and their accompanying drawings, as well as a special Blast From the Past gallery, filled with some familiar friends from past editions of GLASSTASTIC and videos showing how these marvelous creatures are created.

We are also pleased to be able to offer a digital gallery of every single imaginary creature we received this year, which is on view in the Museum and here.

This year’s imaginative young artists whose creatures have been turned into glass are Aaron Archer, Sarah Balint-Wohl, Lucia Carr, Sophia Cavanna, Josie Clough, Rachel Cousino, Reed Cousino, August Davis, Jayden Genest, Bennett Gerding, Charlie Hill, Timmy Hunt, Jake Jerome, Reagan LaFreniere, Madeline Latini, Torielle Lee, John Max Malcovsky, Austin Meader, Aliana Miller, Harley Pecor, Ava Rich, Elijah Rodgers, Olivia Sawyer, Elizabeth Stark, Ayla Traeger, Guinevere Velto, and Marleigh Vose.

The ingenious glass artists who realized their visions in 3D splendor are Mariel Bass, Josh Bernbaum, Marta Bernbaum, Jocelyn Brown, Robert Burch, Dominique Caissie, David Colton, Dan Coyle, Robert Dane, Allie Dercoli, Robert Du Grenier, Sandy Dukeshire, Alissa Faber, Nic Flavin, Wesley Fleming, Zak Grace, Chris Hubbard, Claire Kelly, Jordana Korsen, Lynn Latimer, Sally Prasch, Bryan Randa, Chris Sherwin, Randi Solin, Jen Violette, and Andrew Weill.

We congratulate and thank them all!
