Dale Chihuly, students learned, is a famous American glass artist.

His glass sculptures can be found in various museums, gardens and buildings all over the world.

For “Night of the ARTS,” over 560 bottles were collected, painted and ready for students and parents to work collaboratively to design “Chihuly inspired” sculptures and chandeliers. The finished works will be on display in the lobby of the school.

Pictured are two Albertville Primary School second grade students posing with colorful water bottles that they, along with several first and second grade art classes, helped to paint. The acrylic painted bottles were used in the “Chihuly Creation Station” for A.P.S. students and parents to create sculpture during “Night of the ARTS” which was held at the school on Monday, March 11, and Tuesday, March 12.

You have no idea who you impressed me with this article because I was just thinking that our children are only busy in study and sports, but they are doing some technical work also as you held telstra education in your school and taught your children how to make glass through plastic bottle.
