Chihuly Suspended Sculptures Complete!

My fourth grade class recently completely these amazing suspended Chihuly inspired sculptures.  I wrote more about them in my last post and how our basic tools were clear transparencies, tempera paint, staplers and fishing line.  I love their whimsical nature and the way they bring so much color and movement to the front foyer of our building.  Combined with our painted ceiling tiles that we created all throughout our hallways last year, our snowflake painted windows, our sixth grade Picasso sculptures sitting on pedestals and our clay mosaic dancers mounted on the walls, it is quite a display that greets you as you come through the doors:)  And all thanks to our wonderfully talented students!
