Fabio Pizzol, noted Italian Glass Maestro is working with 4th grade students at the Regional Multicultural Magnet School (RMMS) to create a 5’ x 5’ collaborative Stained Glass Art Project.
Maestro Pizzol recently moved to East Lyme and will open a sister studio here to the one he has in the Milan area of Italy. He is an established leader in the group collaborative glass art arena and has worked with many diverse groups in creating their own stained glass windows. Maestro Pizzol selected RMMS to benefit from a program of introducing Glass Art in American Schools as a way to “pay it forward” for a kindness he received from an RMMS teacher. The project is co-sponsored with the generous support of Bullseye Glass of Portland, Oregon. Bullseye is the world’s foremost producer of compatible glass art and the owners are enthusiastic about bringing glass art to New England public schools.
Maestro Pizzol has worked with the fourth grade students at RMMS to help them develop their own ICON image. This image represents who they are and what makes them unique. The images include cultural references, sports and extracurricular interests, family and countries of origin. Maestro Pizzol will weld the images together and add the school logo to create a 5’ x 5’ image to hang in the school’s front lobby, at a date yet been determined.
