7th Graders Explore Glassblowing!


7th grade has been learning about contemporary glass, preparing for their trip to Massachusetts College of Art to see their glass sculpture exhibit and visit the Hot Shop, MassArt’s glassblowing studio.  In the Art Room, we explored form and repetition by making sculptures out of papers and newspaper, and looked at the artist Chihuly to look at translucency, transparency, and opacity.

On field trip day, we traveled to the campus on Huntington Ave to experience the exhibit, Vitreous Bodies: Assembled Visions in Glass. Students talked about the work and responded to it in 3D working in a group.  Lunch and the visit to the glassblowing studio concluded a wonderful day!
