Chihuly at Glendale Elementary- third and fourth grade
At Glendale third graders made macchia forms from color diffused paper. I used the lesson plan presented at our in-service, but I had the students create stands out of paper tubes to put their macchias on for their final presentations.
Fourth grade did Chihuly paintings on canvas board. Students painted one coat of paint on the first layer and then rolled over with a brayer another color letting some of the bottom layer show through. They drew a simple organic shape from nature with chalk on their canvas and finished it using acrylics, jazz paint , and puffy paint.
