Pre-Visit: Spectacular Stained Glass 

Students will be introduced to Emily Pelstring: The Passion of the Hedge-Rider and create their own art inspired by the tradition of stained-glass windows. Once each student has completed their artwork, the class will combine their works to create one large stained-glass window. This program explores themes of identity and symbolism, as well as community and belonging.
