International Fiber Collaborative Part II

Tree Project
Tree Project

Last year I had my third grader art students create a 3 foot square panel which we submitted to the International Fiber Collaborative project that I have previously blogged about.  This year I had children from several grades create leaves for the new Tree Project that Jennifer Marsh is coordinating in Alabama.  I am going to choose one leaf and make it up to submit in our school’s name once again.  The kids really had a fun time making the leaves, plus it is a great opportunity for them to participate in the art community at large.  The tree display that I created to show off all of the leaves they created is so striking in person.  It is located at the top of a stairwell and this photo does not do justice to the amazing pop of color that greets your eye as you round the mid level.
