What Artists Do With Glue

Gossamer Balls


When introducing children to a material or medium, I like to give them an overview of what artists have been doing with it.  It pushes them to consider it beyond a basic level. Michelle Kong always gets a WOW!  She works primarily in hot glue and has mastered its use to create ethereal works that play with light.  Afterward I have to be careful with my hot glue stash or my high school students will run through it as they experiment!
