Some 2nd graders finished their Chihuly-inspired paper macchia this week. I'm not sure which part of the process kids found most exciting -- watching the spray starch foam and move the color around the coffee filter (here) or unfolding the stiff, dried finished macchia all ready to glue to its base!!
Other classes painted the first part of their Concentric Squares (based on Frank Stella's Concentric Squares). Next week we cut them apart, share pieces with friends and make new pieces of cooperative art.
