Chapman Elementary School from Huntsville, Alabama
Title-“Find A Cure, Peace”
Tell us the story behind your panel:
Recycling, saving the forests, curing cancer, and peace were the most recurrent themes among my 5th grade students. Several students had close emotional connections. Some students’ family members were in the army serving in Iraq and Afghanistan fighting for a peaceful solution while other families were battling cancer. My students took pride in their panel and are very excited to be a part of this incredible project.
Participants: 2009-2010 5th grade students
Techniques Used & Materials Used: Preliminary Sketches,Acrylic Paint on Primed Muslin.
What other projects could the International Fiber Collaborative do?
The Dream Rocket is an incredible project but it was difficult to include
a lot of student artwork on the panel. However everyone is very excited to be part of this project.
