Art Journal: Weaving

Standard
Art Journal: Weaving

After taking a few weeks off from art journaling, we are cracking the spines and jumping back into filling our pages with personal and meaningful artwork. Today was a catch up day so I let the kids have some free time with their books to get them back into the journaling. Before the end of the class, I showed them a bit about what we would be doing next week: mixed media weaving. I encouraged the kids to bring in scraps from home to add to the scraps I’ll have for them to use. Here is my example. I’ll post pics of theirs as we go!

Kinder Weaving

Standard

Oh my goodness. This is not a project for those with limited patience. Still not sure that I’ll survive it myself and I feel like I have a pretty good supply.
I found this project and thought it looked nice. It’s definitely not something I’ve ever attempted before and I have the largest classes i have ever had. I printed the lines on the construction paper with the copier and it was great scissor-using practice. But then we had to start weaving… Whew! A few kids picked it up right away. I’m hoping that next week, after round two, I can get them all on board.

Fantastic Fourth Grade Weavings

Standard

Can’t wait to share these beautiful Weavings! I am planning on making a large one for myself!

Here are a few. Most of the classes added strips with personal information (hobbies, family, pets, adjectives to describe themselves.) I will post some of those as soon as they are completed.

4th Grade’s Magic Carpet Ride

Standard

This week, fourth grade started work on their “Magic Carpets” by painting some of the paper they will use for it. We will probably spend another class painting paper, another class typing up some lines about ourselves to weave into the carpets and then the final class will be spent doing the actual weaving. This might take two classes – we’ll see! I’ll share pictures as we progress through the project, so check back in later. For now, this is my sample:
