Community Watercolor Weavings

Students in the 4th and 5th grades were asked, “how can colors be used to say something about yourself?” In response, students created two paintings while reflecting on their color choices and how those choices can say something about who they are.

Students were then able to choose between their two paintings, keeping their favorite one to use as the base for their weaving. The other was cut into strips then shared with each other student in the class.

These weavings, while combining the artistic talents of every student, create colorful portraits of the classroom communities as a whole.
