The SGAA Stained Glass School is proud to continue its tradition of hands-on classes prior to the Annual Summer Conference for the Stained Glass Association of America. These classes are designed to be professional-level classes, taught by professionals for professionals.

This year, for the Kansas City 2010 conference, a second day has been added to the class schedule to provide for longer, more intensive classes. This will continue next year at the conference to be held in Syracuse, and even longer class schedules are under consideration.

This is an excellent, inexpensive way to increase your knowledge or to expand the expertise of your employees. Classes range in skill level from Beginner to Advanced. Each class description gives exact details of instructor, materials provided or required, skill level and if any previous skills are required.

Beginning with the Kansas City 2010 conference all participants will receive a Certificate of Completion. The hours earned will be eligible for the newly reconstructed program SGAA Certificates of Competence. For more information on the program contact the SGAA Headquarters at 800.438.9581.
