The two fourth grade classes will be making a pair of metal garden trellises. The trellis frames are black clothing fixture grid frames, donated by BC Graphics. The frames are 24"wide and 84" high,with 3" x 3" squares or grids'. There will be legs attached to the bottoms, that will be able to be inserted into the ground to keep them upright.
The students will create 2 1/2" fused class squares using donated/leftover glass. The fused glass squares will be fitted into grids on the fixture frames, with copper wire. The fused glass will be made with the assistance of local artist Jennifer Wells. http://www.jenniferwellsdesign.com/
Students each created their own small piece...and then collaborated in small groups to create larger fused glass pieces.
