Dale Chihuly Flowers

4th graders learned about the ancient art of glass blowing through some YouTube videos that I had seen on other art blogs. I also showed a Power Point that my friend at Artolazzi had made for her kiddos when she did a Chihuly unit. The students created Macchia Flowers using coffee filters, markers, liquid starch, they paper mached the stem of the flowers with tissue paper. The last step was to splatter paint because Macchia means spotted in Italian.
