The title is not a misprint; Mrs. G, our art teacher, scheduled an extra class for the kids to finish up their fabric squares. Most were already done and just needed to do some gluing. We had a little more to do since we missed last week for the Carnegie Science Center class.
The girls finished painting their fabric squares and Mrs. G helped them arrange four in a panel, like a quilt square. They then glued batiked fabric strips around the edges to frame it.
Here is S8 with her finished panel:
Each square was supposed to be something that the kids liked doing, or a place they liked going. S8’s are, clockwise from top left, going to Kalahari in our van; kicking a goal in soccer; jumping because she is having a good day; and the Kennedy Space Center (which we visited in February).
O6 took a little longer to glue her strips on. She wanted to make them just right.
O6’s finished panel:
Hers are, clockwise from top left: herself, in ballet class; herself with our cat, Jack; herself taking a nap on a sunny day; and herself, going on a picnic.
In addition to the four panels the kids did for themselves, they also made a fifth square which went into a larger group project. The center panels were done by older students, and the small squares around the perimiter were done by younger kids. Ours are on the right edge.
