Collaborative Chihuly

2nd graders learned all about the ancient art of glass blowing and glass sculptor Dale Chihuly. We looked at examples of all his different sculptures and watched a video on the glass blowing process. It's so interesting that even though it is an ancient art form, over 2000 years old, little has changed about it and how artists create their pieces. Many of the tools that glass blowers use today are the same ones used 2000 years ago.
Students used washable marker, coffee filters, and starch spray to create this beautiful display outside of my classroom.
