Our pay-what-you-can model is meant to assist young professionals who may not have the financial means for membership. We encourage you to pay what you can truthfully afford (the standard student rate is $50) so that those with less can take advantage of this benefit. There is a $5 minimum for this pay model. 

GAS recognizes that students come in all forms! Whether enrolled in a degree-granting program, starting your glass journey through a public-access studio, or some combination in between, if you are a young adult with less than 5 years of experience pursuing an education in glass, a student membership might be the best option for you.
