Pixel Art

In Mrs. Huy’s Pixel Art Melty Bead class, you will use individual Perler beads to form patterns on a grid, to create pixel art. If you haven’t heard of Perler beads before, here’s the basic low-down: Perler beads, also called Hama beads (in Japan) or melty beads, are small plastic beads in various colors. They are arranged on a preset pegboard to form a design. Then, using an iron and wax paper, the beads are melted together to form a solid piece of plastic solidifying the design. These beads are an excellent way for students to create something that expresses their love for their favorite cartoon character, sports team, or even video game. While many students tend to use Perler beads to recreate their favorite pixel art, they also lend themselves beautifully to creative expression. I’ve seen students reinterpret other non-pixel images, create abstract art designs, and more. Pixel Art for the win!
