Gigantic Glass Mosaics & Wacky Science: June 15-19; 9:30-3:00
Ready to be immersed in the world of glass art? Create your own collection of art while learning how to do glass mosaics. This camp will teach you how to design, make color choices and create glass mosaics. While learning to cut and adhere glass, you’ll make a giant glass mosaic inspired by a master artwork! You’ll also learn about the artist Chihuly while creating “melted” glass sculptures! Also explore principles of science while creating art. Concoct ooey-gooey slime, experiment with color, transform recycled objects into kinetic sculptures and more! Themes explored will include physics, color and light, perception, biology, chemistry, construction, and weather. Projects will include colorful science experiments, crystal flowers, homemade spectroscopes, rain clouds in a jar, paper marbling, slime suncatchers, sugar glass, growing plants, “bacteria” mosaics and more!
