My Kindergarten class whipped up  glass mosaic stars for our School District's Art Showcase with the theme of Starry Starry Night. Each one measures about 6 inches square.

A kindergarten class created those?!?!  Shocked That's amazing! I hope they are very proud of what they made because they're beautiful. And applause to you, for giving them the chance to be creative with out-of-the-norm materials.  Grin

I'm living/working in Yosemite Nat'l Park til further notice! Blogging about it here. No swapping for me, and minimal crafting time, for the coming months. Graduated from library school! That sums things up for now.

Wow! How did you make sure nobody got cut on glass?

Penny: Oh, wow! A girl scientist!
Leslie Winkle: Yup. Come for the breasts. Stay for the brains.

Hey thanks! The kids are beyond excited.  They look great all smashed together like in the picture.  It has been very fun to expose them to more elaboarate projects such as mosaicing and glass fusing.  It is always pleasing to hear someone ask, "When can we fuse some glass again?" or something like that. - I tend to like the Arts and want them to love it too!

To: EnginerdLisa - We use tumbled glass that you can buy at a glass warehouse here in Seattle.  The glass isn't sharp because the pointy edges are smoothed in the tumbling process.  It hasn't failed me yet and we have made a number of different things.

Really neat.  What lucky kindergartners.  All I got to do in that grade was make stupid chains out of construction paper! ;-)

Yea, those kids did some great work and it's great that you give them the opportunity to try it out.
