Title: Women of Distinction / Amelia Earhart

Teacher: Mrs. Petrosino

Theme: Women’s Rights

Materials and techniques: We painted Evolon fabric with pastel colors as a base for the artwork. We decided to feature one woman on each panel. The woman’s name, and a famous quote by her, is included to teach people about her contribution to promoting women’s rights. The women are painted with acrylic paint. On each panel, we included some other form of fabric to enhance the artwork.

Did you enjoy this project? The students enjoyed researching famous women in history, and choosing which four were the best representations for the artwork. It took longer than anticipated to complete the project. We worked after school six times for 1-1.5 hours. The art teacher had to sew on the fabric using a sewing machine.

About: We chose four women of distinction for the subject of our artwork panels. All of them contributed to the promotion of equal rights for women throughout history.
