Genet Elementary School students are creating beauty that they can hold in their hands by making kaleidoscopes in art class.

Inside an empty Pringles can, the students construct a prism of mirrors with cardboard, black paper and acetate sheets. They add beads, pipe cleaner pieces, sequins and paper clips to form the design and then decorate the outside of the tube with a variety of artistic techniques, from splatter painting to sponge painting and beyond.

All students will participate in this project that integrates art and science.

When the project concludes, students will reflect on the project in their science journals.

“The students were enthusiastic and eager to explore and create a kaleidoscope,” said art teacher Lisa Letourneau. “They were excited and pleased with their successful results.”
