When the price says "and up" it means that you can complete an entire project for the base cost -- that includes all supplies and firing. For instance, for $15 at a fused glass workshop, you can create a pendant and earrings or a small suncatcher or glass dish or similar item. But some people may choose to make a larger project, or use premium supplies, and that can increase the cost. You do not have to upgrade your projects, and you can finish a great item at the base cost. But we want to let you know that upgrades are available the night of the workshop if you choose them. 

Information about ART CLASSES/WORKSHOPS

Unless noted otherwise, workshops are conducted by our art instructor, Jennifer Snook. Workshops typically last 1 1/2 to two hours, but it depends on your project. Some people finish more quickly.

If items need to be fired, they will be available for pick-up approximately one to two weeks after the workshop, after they have been fired in the TCC kilns. The cost of the workshop includes firing and supplies. After firing, items are held for pickup in the Rotary Jail Museum gift shop. (During the winter, when the museum is closed, you will make arrangements with the instructor to pick up the items from her directly.) Stop by the gift shop during museum open hours to get your item. 
Workshops are designed for adults/teens/older children. Younger children can attend if accompanied by an adult. 

If you are bringing a child with you, and you and the child are creating one piece together, you only need to pay for one registration. If you are each creating a piece, you need to register both of you. We do not recommend bringing very young children to fused glass workshops, as the glass is sharp.

Register for art workshops on www.Eventbrite.com. If you do not wish to pay online, you can come to the museum during open hours and pay in person, prior to the workshop. Then a space will be reserved for you! Some workshops have a limited number of items available, so please register in advance! Thanks!

Workshops are held in the Tannenbaum Cultural Center at 107 W. Spring St. in Crawfordsville, located behind the Rotary Jail Museum. The TCC is wheelchair accessible and has a wheelchair accessible rest room. 

For many workshops, we also have larger items than can be completed for an additional fee, or premium supplies that require a small extra charge (such as dichroic glass at the fused glass workshops). For example, at our ceramic and fused glass workshops where you choose your own item, the workshop prices are often based on a small item. If you choose to make a medium or large item, there would be an additional fee. (For instance, a nightlight is considered a medium-size item, so if you sign up for a fused glass workshop to make a small item, there would be an additional $3 fee if you want to make a nightlight cover -- which also includes the nightlight base.) If you choose to make a larger project at a workshop, or use an item like dichroic glass, you can just pay the upcharge at the time of the workshop.

Information about ART PARTIES/Art Birthday Parties

Did you know that you can have a party making ceramics or fused glass at the Tannenbaum Cultural Center? 

We host parties for kids ages 5 and up AND ADULTS!

We provide the space, an art project and an art instructor. You can choose ceramic painting or fused glass projects. The price includes the items being fired in a kiln after the party.

You provide the refreshments, and any decorations or favors that you want.  The party is held in the Tannenbaum Cultural Center, and includes two hours of rental time for the party, a half hour for setting up beforehand and a half hour for cleanup.

Items that guests make are usually ready for pickup by the party host a week after the event.

Cost: for ceramic painting, parties start at $10 per person with $100 minimum. If you have more than 15 guests, each additional guest is just $8.

For fused glass, parties start at $15 per person with  $105 minimum. If you have more than 10 guests, each additional guest is just $12.

For more information, email kghall@rotaryjailmuseum.org, talk to Jennifer Snook, or phone 765.362.5222.

Summer 2014 Art Camps

Our 2013 camps were a lot of fun! Thank you for participating. So you can plan ahead, we are letting you know our dates now for next year. The camps sold out this year, so we know you will want to get your registrations in early. Registrations are now being accepted.

All camps are from 1 - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and will meet in the Tannenbaum Cultural Center. We are adding a new camp in 2014 for ages 12 - 18.

Ages 12 - 18 June 23 - 27 $85 Teen Camp -- this is new this year!
Ages 7 - 12 July 14 - 18 $70  
Ages 7 - 12 July 28 - August 1 $70 (This is a repeat session of the earlier July camp.)  

Members of the Montgomery County Cultural Foundation receive a $5.00 discount off each registration. Also, if more than one child from the same family enrolls in any of the three camps, they each receive a $5.00 discount. (Yes, if someone is in the 7-12 camp and a sibling is in the 12-18 camp, they still each receive $5 off.) A family membership to the Montgomery County Cultural Foundation is $25 per year and includes unlimited free admission to the museum for the entire year.
