Quest Group B (2nd IG Gifted Students) from Northeast Elementary School in Meridian, MS


Materials and techniques used: 
We used painter drop cloth canvas, fabric markers, acrylic paints, dot paint, permanent markers and African print fabric for backing. We used the sketches we made and each member of the group added the items to the panel. We used acrylic paint to make our hand prints. Skyler used fabric markers to make tye-dye patterns and peace signs in the dots. The teacher sewed the fabric to the panel for the border and backing.

Why did students choose this theme and design? 
The group enjoyed working on this project. The class did a unit on Freedom, Equality, and peace. The group learned that not all people enjoy the peace that we now have in the USA. We each wrote the word peace in another language. The group worked together to create the design because they wanted the world to know that together “Hand in Hand” we can work for peace.

Participants: 
Cynthia Willis, Teacher of Gifted Students; Kyley, Tyson H., Monthaj, Gabby, Daniel, Skyler, Aubry, Wallace, and Gabe (not pictured)
