For two hours on August 13th, the DGA studio was full of laughter, smiles and excitement. We were welcoming Juli Jameson and her 3rd grade Girl Scout Troop. Accompanied by a few parents and other troop volunteers, Clay and Simon began the class by talking about the values that Dallas Glass Art shares with Girl Scouts: namely community outreach and team work in addition to educational facts about glass as a material.
Once the girls got started, it was evident that they were fearless! The Girl Scout motto is “Be Prepared;” a great skill to have when working with glass. Even the adults were able to join in the fun, including Juli herself!
It is safe to say the DGA team had a fantastic time working with such a renowned community service organization and we know for a fact that our studio pup, Chai, couldn’t have been happier! We hope to see them again soon!
Do you know of a community outreach program that would like to work with DGA’s Art Reaching Out? Comment below!
