3rd grade Chihuly Sculptures

Dale Chihuly is an amazing, famous, glass blower.  His artwork is displayed all over the world.  Check out this digital story I made for a graduate school project to learn more about him!

3rd grade students are very familiar with the glass blowing process.  Many of them went on a small field trip earlier in the year and saw it happen!  We studied Chihuly's life and discussed the look of his artwork.

Students created a small sculpture using coffee filters, marker, and spray starch.  Thank you to Jennifer Heyser, the other art teacher at Woodland ES for this simple yet effective idea.
