I teach at multiple schools. At my main school I'm working on a Chihuly Tower with my fifth graders. [I got the idea from other art blogs, Mr E's and my friend Mrs. Barolazzi (Artolazzi)}] But I teach one fifth grade section at my traveling school, so I combined two Chihuly projects. I combined the Ikebana and macchia projects for my fifth graders. The macchias are made out of coffee filters, markers, and liquid starch attached with pipe cleaners. The Ikebanas are soda bottles with paper mached tissue paper. I had them add tempera paint dots since Macchia means spotted in Italian. And lastly, we added glitter gloss to make it look shiny like glass.
