APS Art Teachers Head Back to the Classroom

On February 12th, the DK-12th grade visual art teachers had the wonderful opportunity to become students for the day and learn about glasswork, and how it can be used in the classroom. Glassworker Jerry Petrovich generously donated his time and materials to teach the APS art teachers how to create stained glass, glass mosaics using fusing, and glass forms through slumping. APS art teachers, with Jerry’s guidance and expert knowledge of glasswork, were able to “learn by doing” and create glass fused pieces and stained glass pieces. art inservice photos for newsletter

As the DK-12th grade visual art department approaches next year’s curriculum review, they are looking forward to investigating how they can incorporate glass work into their curriculum.

The techniques proved to be exciting, engaging, and challenging all components for high quality, higher order thinking lessons that can help APS students grow and create.
