Third graders visited the Lowell Mills as part of their Social Studies curriculum. Shortly after, we began our own weavings. First, we practiced with paper. We wove strips of colored pages over and under, alternating out strips to create a pattern of color. Next, we took on a new medium-YARN! Here are the beginnings of our creations. Come to Arts & Technology Night on May 12th to see our weavings off the looms.
A landscape is something that is the BIG picture of a place. It has a foreground, middle ground, and background. The further away things are, the smaller they seem. Each landscape has a horizon line. We created our own simplified landscapes for our P.T.O. fundraiser, Square 1 Art. Here's your sneak peek:
