Park Avenue Elementary Goes CHIHULY K-5!

Welcome to Park Avenue's K-5 Chihuly inspired exhibition! 

Kindergarten's inspired Macchia vine. This project used coffee filters colored with marker, then spritzed with water then sprayed with starch. Students also create symmetrical leaves to add to the vine. 

First graders took a field trip to see Chihuly at Cheekwood and came back inspired to create a Chihuly inspired Chandeliers and Ikebanas.  Both projects used plastic water bottles. 

Setting up Ikebana's....

The 2nd graders created two Chihuly inspired paper sculptures, The Moon and The Sun. 

The 3rd graders created drawings inspired by Chihuly's wall of drawings. Students rolled paint onto the background and squirted paint like Chihuly. All students loved experimenting with his drawing technique!!!

The 4th graders created Macchia inspired drawings using pastels and watercolors. 

The 5th graders created a Chihuly inspired Seaforms using tissue paper cut into organic shapes and created a radial line design. 

Mrs. Guiffre & Mrs. Jahnig hope you enjoyed looking at our wonderful Chihuly displays!
