Our students are really enjoying the glass kiln and the new glass fusing projects. In March we sold glass jewelry to raise almost $800 for Haiti earthquake relief! Way to go middle school artists. Another gorgeous fused glass creation:
These bird silkscreens will become part of an art installation that will be unveiled at our Propel East Arts Festival May 14, 2010! We will post pictures of the finished product.
Middle school artists also used their new silk screening skills to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. At a fundraiser on March 4th we sold tee shirts with original designs printed on them. According to the Cystic Fibrosis foundation "65 Roses" is what some children with cystic fibrosis (CF) call their disease because the words are much easier for them to pronounce. This inspired the design below.
