Second grade artists have started to explore the art of the Middle East – our cultural focus area for this school year. After examining Mrs. Brouwer’s carpet from Saudia Arabia, they created their own carpets by printing with tempera paint.

Next came color with oil pastels, and the very tricky business of tying on carpet fringe. My second graders have become experts at tying knots!
