Discovering the mission of The Artist In You is as simple as reading its name—to help every guest unleash their creative side.

Bits of colorful glass gain new life during fusing sessions in which visitors can assemble gleaming jewelry or prismatic plates. The studio hosts private birthday parties, bachelorette gatherings, fundraising events, and children's camps, and individual walk-ins are allowed during all of these events.
