Team Spirit: The Ultimate Back-to-School Art Wars

Everything Else
It’s official. Everywhere across the country, millions of young adults have flown the nest with bags packed, ready to begin a new adventure at college. It’s a great time for them to learn more about their studies, the world and themselves.
College is also a place to make friends and develop a lifelong loyalty to a mascot that they will likely pay homage to in many ways. Some of those ways might not be so creative, like shouting out the window to a neighboring car with stickers from the same school. Or worse, shouting at someone from a rival university.
Team spirit ignites such a passion in all of us who have attended school. Even many years later, you probably still cheer for your team. Passion is what fuels creativity. One of the best ways to express creativity is to use art as your outlet. Stained glass projects, mosaic patterns, fused glass projects, and even glass jewelry are all great mediums for which to show your support for your favorite college team.
Take a look over in the Delphi artist gallery to get some creative inspiration for making your own team-inspired works of art. When it comes time for game day, you can proudly display your stained glass panel depicting your favorite team.
If your college kid has an interest in art, it might be a great time to encourage that interest by sharing your own. Bonding together in a creative activity is a fantastic way to solidify your relationship and teach the skills you have garnered as an artist to your child. You can create a piece together or make some glass jewelry magic to wear the next time you visit for one of the big football games.
See if there is anyone you can mentor to help light the way into a spirited journey of art glass work. Nothing makes our craft more special than sharing it with others.
Do you have a favorite college team? Make a glass art piece that celebrates your favorite college team and share it with us in our gallery. Let’s see how many fans each university gets! Tag your work with “school spirit.”
