• Bella Vista’s Glass Art Program is taught by Mrs. Kristen Edington, an alumnus of Bella Vista High School. Glass Art is a unique program that integrates the state content standards with the exciting medium of glass . Students enrolled in this class will learn how to carefully manipulate glass into artistic pieces. A year of Glass Art fulfills the graduation requirement for Visual/Performing Arts. Student artists receive the knowledge and skills to express themselves using glass and the following processes:
    • stained glass
    • sandblasting (etching)
    • beadmaking
    • glass fusing
    • and more!

    Some example projects that students can produce are:
    • Glass boxes, sun catchers, windows
    • Glass terrerrariums, lamps, kaleidoscopes
    • Glass beads, pendants, jewelry
    • Slumped bowls, candleholders
    • Glass sandblastings
    • Mosaics, stepping stones
    • Much more!
    Advanced Glass Art students are integrated with beginning students
    and have stricter grading policies, leadership duties and
    additional assignments.



    All students should have their supplies contributions turned in and received the Safety Lesson before starting Glass work!
