Making Stained Glass Dots with an Artist

On October 1st, 2012 we had the distinct pleasure of having Mrs. Azita Rezvanpour volunteer in our classroom.  Mrs. Rezvanpour is an artist, interior designer, and art studio teacher.  I apologize for the delay in posting about this, however, we have had more blog content than we are currently able to post about.  I guess that is a good thing...Maybe I can catch up over the holidays, so please don't stop visiting us!

I invited Mrs. R into our classroom with the hope that she could help us to transform one of our windows.  We really wanted to turn it into a beautiful stained glass dot window.  I had left over project covers and acrylic paint that I thought we could cut into squares as a sort of collaborative mosaic. 

When Mrs. R arrived she worked her magic and the task was completed better than our initial expectations.

Mrs. R came in with her large artist's bag.  Inside she
had so many interesting tools to use.

It all begins with a single dot!

Every dot was unique and creative.

Now that our stained glass dot window is finished, the sun can shine through it brightly!

Over the weekend I made a personal connection to some work that is also happening across our province in the Peel District School Board.

Our dear friends in Mr. Pascucci's class, whose blog we are also following posted about their experiences with shapes and lines.  We loved his most recent post and hope that he can show his students ours too!

His blog "Crayons, wands and building blocks: A Journey through play-based learning" can be found at:

Thank you to Mrs. Rezvanpour for supporting the students and educators within our classroom with her artistic expertise.  We look forward to having you return to our classroom again soon!

Finally, thank you to Falguni Karia from Lorna Jackson Public School for introducing this wonderful artist to us.

Share your thoughts :

  1. These are beautiful! Thank you for thinking of us. I can't wait to share your beautiful work with the children!

  2. No problem!

    I always show my class your blog. We love your work.

    Looking forward to hearing your childrens' thoughts,


  3. That would certainly be a great project for the kids! And you can design your windows differently every other term with a new project! Brilliant!
