Art & Science students had a great time creating Dale Chihuly glass sculpture-inspired hanging art!

Nothing breakable here. Just some recycled water bottles we painted, cut, and hung to create a beautiful visual color-play…reminiscent of Chihuly’s intricate glass work.


This spring Art and Science Class will be on Mondays for Grades 3-5 and Tuesdays for Grades 1-3. This time, we’ll have an exploring the river theme!
