Making "Friends" in the Art Room

Fourth graders are "making friends" in the art room. They are sewing pieces of felt together to make soft sculptures. The images above are examples from previous years.

We use darning needles because they're a little bit easier for kids to use. Some students have chosen to take theirs home to do a little sewing at home. It's also okay to get a little help from home, if they like.

Some kids are finished and starting to stuff it with cotton batting. We use the paint brush to make sure the batting gets into the legs and arms of the figure.
