The end of this month my 5th graders will be preforming their play. It has a medieval theme. I am teaming up with our amazing music teacher and helping her with her props. I decided this year I would also have an art display at the play. All grade levels will be participating in this art display. 5th graders are making medieval dragons using gallery glass. It is a HUGE hit! They think the gallery glass is soo cool...plus of course dragons are always a cool thing too!
First I had students draw dragons using pencil and outline them with sharpie marker. I did have several dragon images for them to reference from. The drawing part was a big challenge that I think they handled it beautifully!
Using two pieces of scotch tape we attached sheets of extra lamination paper to the top of their dragon drawings. I had teachers and aides collect any extra lamination they did throughout the year. 5th graders then used liquid leading and traced all outlined lines.
Once the liquid leading dries, students filled the spaces with gallery glass.
I have not figured out a good way to finish these off or hang them. I feel like they need some kind of frame or cool way to hang them. Any ideas??
