Chihuly “Glass” Bowls

It’s sculpture time! The kinders learned all about artist Dale Chihuly and his craft of glass blowing!  So totally awesome to watch how it’s done!


Once we were done learning, I set the kinders loose on a pair of coffee filters for them to color with markers.

Once they were complete, they covered old containers and wrapped them with latex free rubber bands.

Then they sprayed them with a heavy starch.
