Make Your Own Glass Heart (*Reservations Required)
The Morean Arts Center's Glass Studio and Hot Shop is offering a sweet option for the month of February -- the chance to create a glass heart.
This 30-minute opportunity allows participants to work individually with one of the demonstration artists to learn the fundamentals of glass-blowing. (Admission to the Morean Galleries and a Hot Shop demonstration are included in the ticket price.) Reservations are required, as space is limited to one student per each time slot available.
Please arrive at least 10 minutes early to complete paperwork. Also, for safety reasons, students must wear closed-toe shoes and cotton clothing, with no jewelry or watches.
The glass heart (or any other object created) must cool overnight. If you are not able to return to pick it up the following day, the Morean will ship it for a small fee.

More About Morean Arts Center
The Morean Arts Center, with roots dating back to 1917 as the Art Club of St. Petersburg, focuses on an innovative, community-oriented approach to art and art education.
Our classes and outreach programs are designed to bring out the artist in all of us. We offer adult programs, kids’ programs, family programs, early childhood programs, and summer camp programs, attracting beginners and advanced students alike.
Our programming doesn’t stop there. Our gallery spaces show local and regional artists, an Art Lounge, interactive Make Space, Spice Routes café and more! Operating under the Morean Arts Center includes the Chihuly Collection, Glass Studio & Hot Shop and the Morean Center for Clay.
The CHIHULY COLLECTION is located at 400 Beach Drive about a mile East of the Morean Arts Center. It is a stunning, permanent collection of world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly’s unique artwork in a magnificent 10,000 square foot setting designed by award-winning architect Albert Alfonso. The Collection is located on the city’s waterfront in downtown St. Petersburg on Beach Drive in the heart of the most vibrant tourist area in St. Petersburg.
This presentation is unique as it is the first installation of Chihuly art in a building designed specifically for that purpose. Designed so that the art and architecture work together to create a visitor experience unlike any other exhibition of Chihuly’s art. The Collection is marked at the entrance by an iconic 20 foot sculpture created especially for the site.
The Collection Store is a haven for glass lovers and offers a selection of art by Dale Chihuly as well as a variety of related merchandise. No ticket required for the store.
