Area of a Stained Glass Window

Don't you just love beautiful stained glass windows?


 This video was uploaded to YouTube by ArtmagicK.  This is not my original video! :)


A few years ago, I started doing stained glass windows with my students for area.  We've always just done them on plain paper, and they are super adorable in the hallway for a display.  This year I am going to run off the stained glass templates on transparencies, and we will hang them in our windows.   Just a side note, I have plenty of transparencies leftover from when we only had the old school overhead projectors.  I think this is a perfect way to use those transparencies!

  6. I've done the Cheez-it area, but I like the art aspect to your stained glass project.

  7. It must have been taken out by other professionals because these are even required and said to be of the same instance, so, we would be having everything right. resume proofreading service
