Your individual or group sponsorship makes it possible for DMG School Project to host up to six annual Artists’ Residencies during which emerging and mid-career artists develop new bodies of work. These residencies vary from one to three months, and artists are supplied with materials, unlimited use of the Hot Shop and etching facilities, and receive a modest stipend. Residencies offer artists freedom from economic and scheduling constraints, resulting in heightened creative inspiration. DMG School Project also mentors its Artists-In-Residence, providing them with technical assistance, marketing and promotional materials, and Museum lecture opportunities.SPONSOR US

DM Glass studio was not only a rewarding and exciting experience for the students, but for our teachers as well. We developed and created extraordinary pieces of art which we could have never exposed our kids to if it wasn’t for DM Glass. The staff is extremely welcoming and caring, professional and entertaining, while the studio is breathtakingly beautiful. I would recommend this place for any teacher looking to expand the creativity of their students, to any school looking to expose students to new forms of art, and to any person looking to do something new. Thank you so much for welcoming us with open arms!Juliana Cabrera Pena Art teacher at Academy Prep of St Petersburg
