UNITY FELT- Group Mural Project
Hi All! Marie here 🙂
I had an incredible day this week visiting with Michelle Stoeffler and her approx. 180 students at Deer Park Middle School.
A Unity Felt Group Mural project was begun, I hope that in the not too distant future we can see how the students finish it.
We have made for them large segments to needle felt onto — around the theme of Peace, Unity, Love and Friendship. Once the students are all done, they will have murals that come together like a puzzle, and can even have parts interchangeable with other classes. In all, there were 6 classes … so there will be 6 murals each with 10 segments.
These kids were brilliant, of course! I loved seeing all of their eclectic art in the room — and being in such a creative space 🙂 What a gift it was for me to spend the day with them!
I took a TON of pictures, but they will not all fit into a collage. If you would like to see more Living Felt facebook page.
The next week we received this from the teacher …
“Check it out Marie Spaulding #livingfelt !
Our students were begging to needle felt again today!
Thank you for introducing almost 200 youngsters to this medium!
We broke 17 needles today but the kids were still using the broken ones
because they loved so much.”
