Excellent Tours' four experienced guides share their knowledge of the capital during three narrated tours aboard vans, mini-buses, and coach buses. Each tour includes stops at the White House, Capitol building, Lincoln Memorial, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, which is where the similarities end. Tours run at three different times and visit several different additional sights, such as the Thomas Jefferson Memorial and the World War II Memorial. During each excursion, guides divulge facts such as how President Theodore Roosevelt gave the White House its name in 1901, and why the engineer who laid the cornerstone of the Washington Monument used the same trowel George Washington used nearly a century earlier instead of the nice one his mother bought for him.
The Washington Glass School’s straightforward progression of classes helps crafters of all experience levels become accomplished glass-artists, demystifying the only art form that combines the chromatic range of oil painting, the practical aesthetics of ceramics, and the high temperatures of burnt-toast-portraiture. The illustrious staff includes Fulbright Scholars, eco-creators, and artists with permanent exhibits at the Smithsonian and the Art Institute of Chicago. The studio also serves as a resource facility for other artists: the Artist Incubator program provides seasoned crafters with studio space for new independent and collaborative works.
