It seems as of late when I check others art blogs that Chihuly seems to be a popular project, so I decided to go along with it. The students really liked working on this project we watched a video of people making glass first Here and that got them interested in Chihuly. We then looked at his examples to get ideas for our own Macchias and I also talked about installations with them as well. I had the students color coffee filters and color them with markers, then I placed them over a plastic cup and sprayed them with starch, waited for them to dry and then hot glued them on a large sheet of paper.
Now our Instillation is installed in the 2nd grade hallway.
