Art 2: Stained Glass

In the Middle Ages, stained glass windows in Gothic churches served a more meaningful purpose than just being beautiful. The windows were used to teach Christian beliefs to many who could not read the Bible. Through the years, stained glass changed and eventually declined until the 1800s.

After reading about the history of stained glass and researching different types of stained glass, as well as famous stained glass artists like Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) and John La Farge (1835-1910), Art 2 students planned, designed, and created a custom faux stained glass piece using Liquid Leading and Gallery Glass Window Color. Students' carefully crafted faux stained glass in combination with God's beautiful sunlight is something to marvel.
