Flexible “Glass” Sculptures Class 3 plus Zoo School and Gymnastics

Today we went to our art class at the Butler.  The kids are continuing to work on their Dale Chihuly-inspired pieces.  I remembered to snap a shot of one of the flexible sculptures.

This was made using Pebeo Arti-stik paints and a thin-gauge wire. Once dry, the sculptures can be shaped. We stood ours up in groupings held by a clay base. This is very similar to Chihuly’s technique, where he inserts each glass tube or rod into a base to make a larger piece.

Immediately after art class, we hightailed it to Akron Zoo for this month’s Zoo School program. The theme was “Crepuscular!”
