What is the story behind your groups panel?
“Students brainstormed about project ideas and choose the Peace sign for their project. It was difficult as several great ideas were developed.
Students then helped to decide on techiniques and medium for the project and helped their teacher design and draw a template for the peace sign design.
35 students hand wove small sections on cardboard looms that were then sewn together onto a fabric backer by teacher, Winki Allen. Mrs. Sarah Tucker, Pre-K Assistant at the school volunteered her time and work to complete the lettering on the project. Mrs. Sandra Little (Sandra Little Insurance Company), a grandparent of one of the students, sponsored this project for the Art Quest classes at Southeast Elementary School.”
