Local Intemediate School ART Students Complete Major Project with Art's Alive!

Fused Glass allows for a beautiful display of color and design. Art's Alive! is a program that promotes such projects in schools and communities in our Region.

ROYERSFORD — Spring-Ford Intermediate School’s 5th  and 6th Grade art students recently completed  a Glass tile “window” at their school. This is Phase Two of a project begun earlier by their counterparts- 5th grade art students.

Sixth-grade students in Cheryl Kramer’s art class began the fused art project in 2011. With the help of professional Philadelphia based mosaic artist Jessica Gorlin Liddell, students created individual tiles of colored glass that complemented the designs created earlier. Once the students completed the design phase, Ms Liddell returned them to her glass studio for firing, also known as “fusing”.

Robyn Burckhardt, co-coordinator for Art’s Alive! said the project allowed students to think critically and work together in a “team” to create a large-scale work of art that would be seen by all who visit the building. A special thanks to SFASD and the Intermediate Home and School Association for sponsoring the projects.
