In addition to creating art and making connections with a story they'd read, second grade students also learned a little about the properties of glass. They looked for pieces that were transparent, translucent and opaque. Their glass art is comprised of several small pieces which will fuse together in a 1400 F kiln.
Second grade students read The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. Keats used various papers, fabric and paint to create the illustrations for his timeless book. Just as Keats placed various shapes together, the second grade students used solid glass shapes of differing sizes and shapes to create their own snowy day art.
The second grade students' glass artwork has been carefully packed and will be delivered to Brazee Street Studios tomorrow. I'll post pictures and information soon. I hope the students had as much fun as I did today!

This morning students in 5A experimented some more with chromatography. Inks and markers are often combinations of several colored dyes. The dyes can be separated through a process called chromatography and the end result is amazing art.
These two artworks were created by Stephen. Check out my photo album to see more of the students' results.
I've posted several pictures of our students and their artwork in my photo albums. Please check them out and have a wonderful Christmas!
