Tara Donovan and Dale Chihuly were two American sculptors who acted as inspiration for the sixth graders’ collaborative sculptures. Using mylar, a shiny, plastic-y material, the teams had to come up with a creative ‘unit’, which they could be able to produce many. The next challenge was connecting the many units together in an artistic way. These sculptures taken on the reflective qualities of Donovan’s sculptures, as well as the concept of many parts equally a whole that both artists embrace.
