Some classrooms at school are looking a bit more glamorous these days. The 6th graders made hanging sculptures, inspired by Tara Donovan. They had to create a “unit”, which had to be repeated over and over. All of the students were given reflective mylar to create the sculptures. For more inspiration, the students looked at sculptures by Dale Chihuly as well as Alexander Calder. They studied pictures of actual chandeliers for ideas. The students worked in partners, and some of the groups decided to donate their projects to teachers in school. Look for these sparkly chandeliers in the main office, the library, Mrs. Worth’s room, Ms. Inglis’, Ms. O”Leary’s, and Ms. Bate’s rooms.
