Playing With Fire is very proud to share our public outreach initiative Good Chemistry!

Good Chemistry is an arts collective run through Playing With Fire's studio that offers educational programming for school groups grades 3-8 and, at-risk youth community groups.

School Groups

We welcome all school groups grades three to eight, from anywhere in Ontario.
The workshop plan is comprised of a visit to the glass studio and the workshops are booked to support middle and elementary school art and science classes. During your visit, the students will get an introduction to basic chemistry and physics in a glass studio, the science behind glass colour, and how science is applied to the art of blown glass.

 

At-Risk Youth Groups

We welcome all students between the ages of 14 to 18 years old, enrolled in middle school or secondary school programs as clients of youth service providers who work with homeless and street youth.
The workshop plan is comprised of a visit to the glass studio and the workshops are booked to support middle and high school art and science classes. During your visit, the students will get an introduction to basic chemistry and physics in a glass studio, the science behind glass colour, and how science is applied to the art of blown glass. Each student is tutored through an individual experience in handling molten glass. The result will be a small handmade piece to take home.

In 2017, Good Chemistry ran our at-risk youth programming with generous support from the Ontario Arts Council.
