Title: “Everything Seems Impossible Until It’s Done”, Nelson Mandela
Theme: World Peace
Materials: Textiles
About: We used this project to explore quilts as an art form. We studied the work of Faith Ringgold and the quilters of Gees Bend to gain appreciation and respect for quilts as a way to express ideas and stories. Students discussed and settled on a quote by Nelson Mandela. “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
