Have you ever seen someone take hot, molten glass and transform it into 3-D art? We’ll imitate glass blowing by creating glass-like sculptures inspired by the American glass artist Dale Chihuly. We’ll even take a field trip to a real glass blower’s studio. Using plastic cups and plates, coffee filters, an oven, and lots of markers and paints, we’ll transform your piece of art into realistic and colorful glass-like containers, chandeliers, sculptures, and mobiles. As we create, we’ll use the elements of art—shape, color, form, and design principles.
