About: Students selected a person of ‘vision’ from the Dream Rocket ‘Visionaries and Art link. Students wrote a little biography on that person and told why they chose that person. For their quilt square, students painted imagery to deliver the message they wanted to promote from that visionary. It was the part that spoke to their heart, the part that inspired them.

Did your group enjoy participating? Students absolutely loved doing this project. They were so enthused, so excited and so motivated! It was tremendous!
