|"I am flying over the Eiffel Tower. I had a dream to go near. I am so happy."|
Check out the post about this project below...
|Since I did this project in one day with the students (and they took them with them),|
it was a whirlwind and I didn't get any photos of student projects :-(
|Jasper Johns, Numbers in Color (1958-59)|
For this version of the project, students looked at the book, “Tar Beach” by Faith Ringgold and used drawing and collage to create storytelling quilts about flying away to someplace special. Students then wrote a description of their piece to be displayed with the work. Individual student work was mounted together to create a whole-class composition displayed in the hallway. Note: the glare on the photos below are due to the glitter glue "stars" we added. Everything is betta with glitta!
|The finished quilt--beautiful!|
|"Hi. I am Liz and I'm in New York where there's cars and good food|
and on the 4th of July we put fireworks up in the sky but right now
I'm flying. Do you want to fly with me?"
|"I am the fastest superhero and I like basketball and soccer.|
I am speedy."
