Stained Glass Bugs
We looked at different examples of stained glass and discussed how it was made. We tried to mimic the look of it but using black paint to create thick lines to outline our drawings. Students drew a picture on scrap paper- the theme for this lesson was bugs, students had to zoom in on a bug and foliage (plant, flower, tree, etc). They then placed a transparency sheet over it and traced their drawing with black paint. The next week when the paint was dry they flipped them over so the paint was on the back and colored in the different areas with a variety of colors using colored sharpies. It is important to remind students not to use too much paint- if there is too thick an application it will peel off when dry.
