The students were asked to to a watercolor wash on them.
|I provided thread, yarn, floss, metallics, and some inspirational books|
Then the students were asked to stitch into the paintings, however they wanted and with whatever colors they liked. I showed them a bit about selecting needles and how to audition threads. Away they went!

|some were stitching on a landscape|
|some embellished eye-catching abstracts|
|some gave up before they even began stitching (view into the class garbage can)|
|some were deeply thankful for the opportunity and went on to create masterpieces : )|
That is whole point to why I got involved in this particular venture. Not everyone is expected to enjoy every kind of art. But everyone in a school art class should have an opportunity to explore many forms of art.
The art world includes FIBRE.
And look! Now theirs does too! : )
