Chihuly Macchias

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.


  1. This would be really cool to do with all my students for my Fine Arts Night! Pinning!

  2. Thats a great idea it only takes about 5 to get them to dry as well.

  3. I just discovered so many of your blog pins this evening. Your students are so lucky to have you! Hello from Coles County!
