Creating works of glass is a unique experience in the Upper School art studio. Special safety glasses with didymium glass lenses block the intense sodium flare that comes off hot glass, along with reducing infrared radiation emitted by torches. They are necessary to prevent burning of the retina. Being able to buy extra glasses and additional safety equipment would help introduce more students to glass working and also allow for more people to watch demonstrations.

*All donations made to this year's gala support the overall operating budget and will be eligible for the Colorado Childcare Tax Credit. Auction items purchased are subject IRS regulations regarding the value of goods/services received.
