Art club students at Lewis & Clark Elementary School are learning about world renowned artist Dale Chihuly, a Washington native who is famous for his glass sculptures. On Thursday, the students took a field trip to Glass Punty in Richland to observe glass blowing techniques in action.
“They loved it so much they are already asking about the next field trip,” says Lulu Jones, Lewis & Clark art teacher.
While at the Glass Punty, the art clubbers had the opportunity to create jewelry holders using cut pieces of colored glass. The glass pieces were placed in a kiln to melt and fuse together. The jewelry holders will be on display at Lewis & Clark next week.
