What You'll Get

The very first houses were built of glass, giving homeowners 20/20 views of birds and their neighbors’ catapults and meat piles. Go glassy on a smaller scale with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a create your own mosaic tile session at Sonoran Glass Art Academy (an $85 Value) on West 18th street.

Third generation glass artist Alysa Phiel helps students create one-of-a-kind glass tile mosaics, known as trivets, to take home. Glasswork greenhorns will have no trouble molding multicolored masterpieces in the care of 20-plus-year veteran glass artists Alysa Phiel. During the two-hour class, each student will learn how to cut sheet glass before gluing finely figured shards on treated wood and grouting designs into a state of permanence only undone by the will of Zeus. Dreaming up patterns evoking flowers or landscapes, this class is well suited for spring, with the 6 x 6-inch tiles making Mother's Day gifts sure to wow beyond classical works of macaroni impressionism. Classes are open to ages seven and up, and can accommodate up to 10 people, allowing for close attention from the teacher. Students can take home the freshly minted mosaics at the end of the class.

A non-profit dedicated to promoting glass as a visuals arts medium, Sonoran is one of the premier glass arts teaching facilities in the desert southwest. Before or after their class, students should also check out Sonoran's gallery of creative glass sculptures made by instructors and students.


The Sonoran Glass Art Academy has been featured twice in the Arizona Daily Star: once for its classes and once for its glassmithe, Karl Taylor. The business also has more than 650 Facebook fans.

About Sonoran Glass School

Sonoran Glass School may sound like a Hollywood stuntman school, since students are encouraged to play with glass, flame, and saws. However, their in-depth glass-working classes teach pupils how to create delicate objets d'art under the watchful eye of a host of experienced instructors. Torchworking classes teach pupils how to shape their own paperweights and vases out of molten glass, and facet-cutting courses let students create mosaics depicting abstract designs or themselves making mosaics of abstract designs. Kids' and adult classes offer age-appropriate instruction, and an 10-student class cap for most courses ensures plenty of one-on-one time with the teacher.
