Kids Love Fused Glass – it’s Magical and Clay for Kids makes it SAFE
Safety is of utmost importance in the classroom. Softened glass with rounded edges in many shapes and colours will be used in preschool and Kindergarten classes. Grades 1-12 will have a large variety of colours, shapes and sizes of glass to chose from.
Glass programs for grades K – 12: 1½ hour classes; two classes in a day.
All classes must be in the same room due to the amount of base and decorative glass that we bring to each class and the required clean up after the classes.
Our instructor will bring all the materials to ensure the students have the opportunity to create their own fused glass masterpiece. We will demonstrate various techniques using different shapes and sizes of glass. There will be a variety of shapes and colors for your students to use.
Children will design their own creations as part of Art curriculum or projects such as All About Me, Insects and Nature (mountains, trees, rivers) can be tied to curriculum subjects. A new glass project is the Teepee village. We also offer nativity scenes and Christmas ornaments for Christmas celebrations.
When the pieces are completed, the glass will be taken to our studio to be fired. We supply all classes with information on the history and firing experience of glass. The firing process is much more complicated than with our Clay for Kids pottery pieces. We are happy to share this information with the students.
Fused glass has fit into Clay for Kids philosophy of encouraging the individual creativity of all our students whether they are children, teens or adults.
Samples can be viewed at Dr. Coffin and Glendale school.
Each tile is a little over 5 cm square. The students will have a variety of coloured glass. Each tile will be embedded with two wire loops which allow the tiles to be attached to the chain link fence. The decorated tiles fired and returned within 14 days.
Cost: $5/student plus GST (200 participants or more)
