The center offers a casual atmosphere, and its philosophy allows every painter to progress at their own pace and choose their own compositions.

Hostess City Hot Glass

Established in 2018 by Ronald Martinez, Hostess City Hot Glass offers classes fun for date night or an evening with friends. Ronald grew up outside of Savannah, and he learned the art of glassblowing while attending college in the Pacific Northwest. He opened the studio after returning home with his wife and daughter, and the blow your own glass class is perfect for beginners. All students receive one-on-one instruction while learning how to add color to an ornament or paperweight.
