RPRY Learns About Glass Blowing

In the RPRY art department, the fourth graders were introduced to the work of glass artist Dale Chihuly. Students were captivated by the fiery glass blowing process as demonstrated in a video made in Chihuly’s studio. They then created a “Chihuly-type” sculpture of their own creation, using shrink material and colored inks. Heating the shrink material mimicked the actual glass-blowing process, where the blower has some control with a degree of serendipity, to the excitement of the students. RPRY’s broad education provides students multiple areas to explore and shine!
