Students traveled to the Lauren Rogers Museum of Arts to visit the Dale Chihuly Venetians Exhibit. Chihuly is famous for his blown glass art pieces and interesting designs. During our visit we learned about Chihuly’s training and the process of glass blowing. After viewing the exhibit, students created their own art pieces by decorating cups and plates and heating them in an oven to create a molded sculpture. Following the field trip, we challenged our students to replicate Dale Chihuly’s work using measurement conversions. Check back soon to see how our replicas turned out!
If you would like to visit the Chihuly exhibit, it will be at the Lauren Rogers Museum in Laurel until June 5th! This exhibit is free to the public!
