All Hill View students are working on a group “quilt” project to go along with the art of Faith Ringgold who is known for her story quilts. The kindergarten classes have been doing a fine job of using a three color pattern to carefully fill in each quilt square pattern. Matching patterns have to have matching 3-color marker patterns. Sound confusing?! The K classes didn’t think so! They caught on so quickly, AND are doing a superb job of coloring carefully and neatly!
They also completed some winter (icicle, blustery, winter winds…) paper sculptures that are currently hanging from the ceiling in the “arts wing”, as I like to call it, at school. (That would be the hallway between the art and music rooms.) I had a 4th grader ask me who made them, and when I told him kindergarten, he was quite impressed. “Whoa! I thought you were going to say an older grade did them!”
