Stitching a Picture

My Students

I have over 450 curious minds that come into my classroom, each week, ready to learn about art: both the history and the practice of making it. The students I have are in a wide range of ages 5-14 and grades kindergarten through 8th. For some of my students, this is the first year they have attended my art class, and they are eager to participate! For others, this is another year for them to learn and experience new things. My students are bright and energetic, with creative minds that shock me sometimes, with the great ideas they come up with. Many of the children I teach have a very hard home life, their parents are both working two to three jobs to scrape by, they are homeless, or they come from a broken family. The goal of my classroom is that no matter where they come from, or what is going on outside of school, the students have the same opportunities and materials as students in the schools around here. It can be hard at times, but with the support of people like you, I am able to give these students an amazing art class each year.

My Project

I would like my students to learn how to embroider by creating flour sack towels or pillow cases. The students will choose an exciting design or create one of their own to place on a towel or pillow cases. They will start by drawing out what they would like their project to look like. This will allow me to see their plan and talk with them about any issues or questions they might have about the design and process. The students will then upload their image to the computer and use a program to create the stitching. When their image is ready they will start the embroidery process.

The hope is that the students learn how to work with technology to create art.

The towels and pillow cases will be used for students to take home as gifts for their family and friends during the holidays. Please help the students discover what embroidery is and how to stitch a picture.
