Fused Glass Tile Project

Our fused glass tile project is under way.   Grade 4 students and fifth grade Art Enrichment students worked with Artist Jessica Gorlin-Liddell to create a fused glass tile.

Artist Mrs. Jessica Gorlin-Liddell speaks to a fourth grade class.


Students used color pencil
to plan their glass designs.


The glass pieces are glued into place and packed for transport to the studio to be fired in the kiln.

After firing, the tiles will be mounted and installed into the sidelights at Stony Brook's Main Entrance.

Caricature of Me!

It's Me!

Thank you, Jessica & Regan!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Stony Brook Students in Grades 1 through 5 made cards to accompany the Thanksgiving baskets for Mill Hill Child Development Center, Hopewell Gardens Seniors and four military families.  Thank you, Stony Brook Families!

"Good people do good things."    Thank you, students!
