It's almost time to return back to school from winter break. I'm at home with a cold (booooo...) but thinking about art class when we return.
Mrs. Bensfield and I are planning to start an after-school club for textile arts! Our project is "Crochet a Coral Reef," which is a really sweet mix of math, science, and visual arts. We're going to learn basic crochet skills to create incredible pieces of "coral" made from yarn!
Want to see some more photos of what we're thinking of? Need more information? Check it out here or at the Institute for Figuring, who were the originators of the idea.
In order to run our club, we need help with supplies. Can you donate, or do you know anyone who might be able to? Please share this link with them: http://www.donorschoose.org/donors/proposal.html?id=493031 -- this is our "Donors Choose" site to raise funds for our project. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
If you're interested in joining the Crochet Coral Reef Project at Sandburg, keep an eye (and ear) out for information posted at school when we return! Tell your friends, too!
