Students began their journey into printmaking and weaving this last week. Here are some photos of students working on weaving (AND RECYCLING!!) our Jackson Pollock splatter paintings!
First grade artists enjoyed the story,
The Spider Weaver by Margaret Musgrove.
The story introduces students to the legend of the Kente Cloth that originated in Africa. In African cultures weaving is a necessary part of everyday life. Students discovered symbols and meanings in Africa as well as some important concepts of weaving: warp, weft and loom. Each of the students created their paper weave using shapes, lines and color to symbolize exciting patterns in art.
Here are a few of the finished works of art on display!
