Third Grade Chihuly Sculptures
We started off this lesson learning about radial balance. The students created some cool radial designs on square paper to get the hang of the concept. Next, we looked at the artwork of Dale Chihuly. He's a world-renowned glass sculptor whose art appears in multiple countries. We divided his artwork into three-ish groups: chandeliers, standing sculptures and macchias. The macchias were our focus and we safely emulated his glass macchia art by using markers, coffee filters and spray starch. After adding a fun title and a background the fit with their theme, the artworks were complete!
