Took my first glass blowing experience with David Spurgeon. Had a wonderful time and it made me want more-can't wait to take the full class! The instructor was very patient and very thorough when explaining each step... Thank you to the Morean Arts Center for offering this awesome experience!

Both offer an amazing selection of classes! The art center is on Central with a gallery of changing art on display and available for sale.
I love the Moreanartcenter for Clay in an amazing old train station (on 5th ave. South and 22nd st.) they have many options for both advanced and novice. You could do a few hous to just play with sow clay and complete a project...all the way to studios where artisans are creating lovely pieces, many available for purchase...worth looking into!

I never heard of the Chihuly collection, of course the wife knew all about it. The art work is fantastic and a must see. The Art Center does a wonderful job of greeting and directing a great tour of the whole collection. Give yourself plenty of time to take the tour and then go back through it again alone to take the time to just visit with each piece. Picture taking is allowed and welcomed. Take lots of them.

For an amazing experience that you've probably nover done before, take a glass blowing class at the Morean Art Hot Shop. They have classes daily and on some Friday nights they have a "Hot Date in the Hot Shop" where you and your date take turns in all the steps to create your very own glass blowing project. Dave is the artist who taught my wife and I. He's the best! FUN ON A STICK!!!!

A friend and I visited the Morean Art Center and the Chihuly Collection. The price was fair and the exhibits were stunning. Photos can never do justice to the exhibits. The staff and volunteers were kind, friendly and helpful. Our docent was very knowledgable about Dale Chihuly and the art. The gift shop had a number of interesting offerings. There was an inspiring and informative video about all of Chihuly's work and his background.
