A Collaborative Chihuly Inspired Project Created by students from PINE GROVE LEARNING CENTER, LINCOLN DEVELOPMENTAL CENTER and KEN-O-SHA ELEMENTARY. Visual Arts Teacher: Lori Reuben. Grand Rapids Public Schools. Over the past three years my students have taken an in-depth look at artist Dale Chihuly, an American glass sculptor and entrepreneur. We have explored and recreated many of his works through different ART projects using a wide variety of materials such as record albums, plastic plates and as seen here - coffee filters. This creative process also included the use of markers, paint dabbers and spray starch in the design all while learning important vocabulary, experimenting with different textures and mediums. Select classrooms then combined all their pieces together for this unique art installation. We could not be more proud of the results!
