The Glass Art Society offers many benefits specifically to student members and encourages and supports students of all ages and levels.
GAS offers discounted membership for part-time and full-time students
enrolled in at least one course at an accredited, degree-granting high school, college, or university. Special opportunities are offered just for student members throughout the year. Proof of student status is required when joining.
Student Representative to the GAS Board of Directors
The Student Representative to the Glass Art Society Board of Directors is a vital position and we encourage full-time, college-level student members enrolled for the full school year to apply by self-nomination, supported by two references.
Become a GAS Student Liaison
The Glass Art Society recognizes one Student Liaison per accredited school annually to represent the students and professors for that institution. Learn more and sign up to become a liaison.
The Thesis Shelf
GAS members are graduating from MFA and PhD programs all year long. In an effort to help disseminate the knowledge these students have gathered in their theses, GAS is making select academic papers available to GAS members online. View the Thesis Shelf.
GAS Student Exhibition: A Showcase of Emerging International Talent
The Glass Art Society holds a Student Exhibition each year. All artwork is submitted via an online application, then juried for awards and inclusion into the show. Students who are unable to ship their artwork or unable to attend the conference will still be eligible for awards, as all artwork will be juried in advance, via the online application.
The Glass Art Society reserves the right to deny applications for Technical Display, advertising participation, GAS membership or the conference from anyone for any reason.
