Art Specialist

In honor of Black History Month we are designing our own story quilts based on the art of Faith Ringgold.  The students were very excited to think about an image that tells a story of a time in their lives.  First they will paint an image on Muslin cloth that tells a story then on the same type of cloth they will paint designs that will become swatches that complete the look of a quilt. All this will then be glued to a piece of felt as the backing.  We discussed History and how we celebrate different parts of our history at different times of the year. The students thought it was important to mention that all history is important all year despite the race, culture or ethnicity. What an insightful group of students. We’ll be post more pics as we work on our projects.
