Mass Glass Class

My students need two different types of glass kits and glass to experiment with glass fusion.

My Students

Melting glass is such an exciting adventure for students. Not knowing what will happen to the glass when it is in the kiln is the exciting part! What will it look like when it comes out? How big will it be? Will the colors change?

I currently work in a Title 1 school with many students who come from culturally diverse backgrounds, some who speak little to no English, and some who have no idea what to do after the school day ends because there are no parents home.

Having a class for students after school where we can venture into more unique projects such as glass fusion sounds like the ideal situation to give to my students.

My Project

I am requesting two different types of glass kits to experiment with my students. It will give them the opportunity to create two different sized projects such as a necklace pendant or a small tile. Both items could be used for gifts or other fundraiser opportunities for our art program. Glass is an expensive art material to use, so it is a material I would not be able to order on our own. It will give the students the opportunity to give their pieces as a gift or show them that people want to purchase their items and that they can be artists in the future and give them a direction in which to pursue college goals.

Our school initiative is "Up the mountain to T-2-4" which means we are encouraging our students to reach great heights while aiming towards going to and completing a Technical school, 2 year or 4 year degree.

Exciting the students with different types of art projects beyond the classroom experience will give many students the opportunities to see what else art has to offer them for their future career choices--possibly in the arts, while having fun in the classroom.
