Following our texture unit we have moved into weaving and sewing.
Kindergarten through second grade are working on artworks inspired by Brice Marden. They show depth through the use of multiple materials. They are also working on sewing skills by creating small needlepoints.
Third grade is working on tree weaving. It is really fun and the outcomes are going to be GREAT.
The fourth and fifth grade are working on traditional weaving and finger crocheting.
Everyone seems to be loving these thread based projects.
Images coming soon!
