BEGINNING 3-D ART
indigo vat, cotton, strong thread & needles
Not only do my 7th graders get a chance to dip into the Indigo Vat,
but so do my Beginning 3-D kids.
For my 7th graders we only have time to take a Tye-Dye approach to the dye,
but because the Beginners are in a year long class,
we can go more into depth with needle and thread.
First we practice several techniques,
various shapes, and wrapping.
Above we have senior Charity Lizardo & junior Cheryl Mae Malabo 's prelims.
This is a close-up of teacher Deliana Park's wrapped Prelim.
We all loved how she got a heart that had so much movement to it.
After doing the prelims.,
each student gets another piece of cloth
to make their real one that they turn in for a grade.
Deliana made one of the class's favorite designs.
All these interesting horizontal lines.
And junior Insha Khan's design was glorious as well.
She stitched circles around some rust pieces with border lines.
After these were graded and handed back
they had a choice to use them as the backs for their Solar Dyed Pillows (coming up),
or to use these as fronts for another pillow,
or perhaps a journal cover.
The sky's the limit!
