Glass Fusing, Jewelry Design and Wearable Art Blog Stars 2009/2010

Middle school artists have been learning to use our new glass-fusing kiln! Students learned how to carefully cut glass using many new tools. These first jewelry designs wowed us all!

Before we got into the glass fusing, we warmed up to jewelry making with polymer clay. Most artists focused on jewelry but this artist found his own niche creating these mini animals. Yes, that is a DJ octopus!



Nikko Mangretta:





We've just begun a unit on silkscreening. Middles school artists are working on a 2 color bird print on fabric. Stay tuned -the many cool bird prints will soon be a new art installation in our school! We'll be sure to post some pics here on the blog.
