Detailed description:

The Young Glass Symposium (YGS)/Young Glass Symposium is a unique platform for the first meeting of artistically talented children with top craftsmen. 

The participants of YGS 2022 were selected by an expert jury chaired by the prominent European designer and winner of the Czech Grand Design award, Prof. Liběna Rochová, who is also the ambassador and artistic guarantor of the symposium, on the basis of the art competition "Mythical Creatures of the Crystal Valley". 

Almost 300 children from primary art schools from all over the country took part in the art competition, 15 of them made it to the first year of the Children's Glass Symposium. The children's task was to portray mythical creatures in glass using the technology of hand shaping and glass blowing, cutting, painting, sandblasting and glass mosaics.

The organizers of the symposium are the Střední uměleckoprůmyslová škola sklářská Kamenický Šenov, Pačinek Glass and the Mšeno Primary Art School.
