Amazing art. These glass flowers are handmade by skilled artisans. Corning Museum of Art has held pieces like this and more in their gift shop.

The National Art Honor Society will travel to the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York on April 18. The trip will be all-day, as they will leave the school at 6 a.m. and will return around 6 p.m.

“The students get excited about it because it’s a chance to do something most people probably never consider doing,” club adviser Kathryn Curry said. 

While at the museum, students will be shown the displays by a tour guide and will take part in making their own glass pieces. In the past, they’ve learned how to make flowers, suncatchers and more. This will be their first time going back to Corning since the pandemic.

Mattie Baker, Reporter
My name is Mattie Baker, and this is my first year on staff! I've always loved reading and writing. My goal this year is to write a complete book. My dream job, at the moment, is to work at Barnes & Nobles and drink Starbucks on the daily. I'm obsessed with action movies like "Bullet Train," "John Wick" and "James Bond." I also have a passion for art. I've been taking extra art classes for over 10 years! Later in my life, I hope to be a storyboard artist and author.
