COVENTRY— As part of its summer reading program, Greene Public Library hosted a local artist to teach some of the children how to create fused glass.

Deenie Pacik Giuliano found her passion for glass 15 years ago while enrolled in an abstract painting class at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Following her time there, she studied glass at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and furthered her studies at Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle.

After moving to Rhode Island from New Hampshire a few years back, she now makes a living creating stained glass windows, modern fused glass and architectural glass art.

From her home in Warwick she teaches classes for anybody interested and also travels to various places throughout the state teaching students and children alike.

Her most recent journey landed her at the Greene Public Library yesterday morning to teach the children enrolled in the summer reading program how to create fused glass.

Charlotte Boisclair, Branch Librarian, explained that each year they hold a program for the students in the area to ensure they continue reading throughout the summer.

“The requirement of the program is to read six books during the two months,” she added. “Each week is a different genre. And every Wednesday the children are given a chance to do an arts and craft project.”
