Glass in the Art Room? Absolutely. Glass is finding its way into schools across the country as a viable means of self expression as well as an enticing cross curricular tool in the toolbox to help illustrate concepts such as Science, Math and Literature.
Brazee Street School of Glass (SOG) has led the way creating age appropriate kiln-glass curriculum as a resource for educators. SOG has worked with hundreds of Cincinnati area children and teachers in over 25 local schools, in addition to teaching kid-formed glass workshops in Portland, Santa Fe, and more.
In this fast paced workshop, educators will be introduced to basic kiln-glass materials, processes, and equipment, while developing lessons to implement in their own classroom. Through demonstrations, samples, and hands-on activities, participants will experience a sequence of foundational kiln-glass projects appropriate for students ages 3-18.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to arm yourself with new skills as an educator. Participants will leave with samples, lesson plans, and the knowledge to teach kiln-glass art in their school.
Sandra Gross, Instructor, holds an MFA in sculpture from Miami University and an M.ED from Xavier University in Montessori and Early Childhood Education. As a lifelong educator, Sandra's teaching experience ranges from the 3-6 Montessori classroom, to University level sculptural education including wood, bronze, and glass. Since opening Brazee Street Studios in 2009, Sandra has developed groundbreaking glass art curriculum for students ages 3-18. Gross has recently presented and taught her kilnforming with children curriculum at Bullseye's BECon, OAEA, NAEA, with upcoming presentations at the Cincinnati Art Museum and more. Brazee's passion to engage more children with kilnformed glass and a commitment to helping teachers has led to the creation of this workshop - giving teachers the tools they need to bring glass art into their classroom.
