Inspired by Faith, students created a “quilt” through the combination of felt, textiles, fabric and painting on canvass, embellished with buttons, “pom poms”, ribbon and more, then painted borders to add to their quilts.
As a side project, some students created painted compositions using their names. It was fascinating to see that they used the same color combinations in both.

Students had their own “color stories” as well, which repeated throughout their works.
The students employed a variety of materials in create an impressive amount of detail.
The students, all girls aged 9-11, seemed to pour their hearts into this project, working on it for twice the time planned.
