Weaving And Wood Collage

My students need burlap and dowels for creating weavings, and wooden shapes for collage.

My Students

Learning about shape and learning to weave are visual art standards in the elementary grades. Using a variety of materials can help students grasp those standards.

My students attend public school in a large multicultural city.

Most come from low-income families, are struggling with math, reading, and writing, but can feel successful through art making. Some have special needs. These children are not exposed to a variety of experiences unless the school provides that opportunity. As their art teacher, it is my responsibility to expose them to as many different ways to express themselves as I can. With a variety of art materials the students can have a rich creative experience.

My Project

I need burlap so that my students can learn about weaving, one of the visual art standards, by adding to and subtracting from the loose weave of the burlap.The wooden dowels will be used to hang the weaving. I also need wooden shapes so that students can create beautiful collages using just shape. Both projects are suitable for my special needs students due to the ease of manipulation of the materials and high likelihood of success, enabling the students to feel great pride in their individual creations.

Due to budget constraints, there are limited materials available for teaching art.

Having these materials will enable the students to have an experience that they are not likely to get outside of school. Self-expression through art is important for all children to have, no matter what their socioeconomic status. My students will have a richer experience from using materials that are more tactile, like burlap and wood.
