Stained Glass Window Mosaic Exhibition Report

After nine weeks of struggling with new, complex and dangerous media, the Art 3 and Art 4 students held a glittering exhibition and silent auction in the FHS library on April 14. Eleven windows among the 27 on view were up for auction. With capacity attendance from family and friends the Art 3 students demonstrated the mosaic process and provided refreshments during the auction. 7 windows went home with the highest bidders at an selling price was $87 this year. Proceeds are shared between the individual sellers and the art department field trip to Cleveland Museum of Art.

Donate Windows – As long as there are single-paned, wood-framed salvaged windows available, this project will continue. Contact the FHS Art Department if you have windows that we could use next winter. ltawil@firelandsschools.org or 440-965-4255 ext. 4209.
