|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
Students will watch a YouTube video and learn about Dale Chihuly and the Science of Glass Blowing. Following this, students will create an organic shape out of shrink wrap and create a design using a variety of patterns and color. I will later heat the wrap to create their own unique Chihuly inspired sculpture. Students will publish their work on Artsonia along with an artist statement.
