Art Project #35: Stained Glass Class

Alec has been working on making a stained glass dragonfly for a few weeks now.  We have a neighbor who does such beautiful stained glass work and she offered to teach Alec and allow him to do a project with her.  How convenient that he's learning a new art in the midst of our 100 Days of Art Challenge.

He was beyond excited!

We watched a video on YouTube about soldering and I reminded Alec of our glass fusion class that we took.  We had scored and cut glass for that glass; which was a technique he was going to need for his project.

He has been working with her here and there over the past month and came home with lovely dragonfly plant stake.

He has now moved onto making a Pokeball and we're looking into buying some of our own supplies to continue working on our own.  I have always wanted to learn stained glass and thought this might be the perfect opportunity for me to learn too.

I know this post is vastly different from the rest since I have NO guidance or even many pictures; I only hear second hand about what he is doing and learning but Alec is so proud of everything he is learning and making for me not to share.

  1. What a beautiful art piece! Thanks for sharing all of your links with us at Together on Tuesdays :)

    1. I was stunned at what a great job he did! Thank you for stopping by!

  2. That turned out amazing! I've always loved stained glass. I made a little trinket box in an art class in high school, and I'm still kicking myself for giving it away, lol.

    1. I've decided that I need to buy supplies and teach myself (or let Alec teach me). I've always wanted to learn how to do stained glass but just never seem to get around to it.

  3. This reminds me I used to do a lot of glass crafting before I had my daughter. Now she's 10 and we're homeschooling, and I'm thinking maybe, it's time to take a stain glass class! <3 I bet she would love that. Thanks for bringing back that memory.

    1. You're welcome and I bet she'd really enjoy it.
