This is a fun and pretty art project! Students mimic the art of lead and stained glass with the common materials of black construction paper, glue and colored chalk or pastels. This is a two step project which would be great to decorate the classroom walls, frame for a gift, or just to express uniqueness. A variation for older students or home taught children where a more expensive medium can be purchased, would be to paint and use a canvas on which to make the stained glass work.
I have used this when I substitute teach with 3rd, 4th and 5th graders and they have all enjoyed doing the project.
