The term stained glass can refer to the material of colored glass or the craft of working with it. Through out history, the term stained glass was applied to the windows of churches and cathedrals but has later on evolved and included 3D structures and sculptures. I wanted my students to imitate the stained glass art works using light and readily available materials.
Here are the materials we used:
1) Black construction paper
2) Different colors of water cellophane
4) Scissors/ cutter
1) Lightly sketch any design on the construction paper (leave a space between the segments).
2) Using scissors or cutter, cut out the windows per segment.
3) Glue the colored pieces of water cellophane to the back of the paper.
This is the result:
