Georgetown artists have been learning about the art of Japan, China, and India. Third and fifth graders explored an ancient form of Japanese “tie dye” called shibori. In Japan, fabric is folded and tied in elaborate ways to create beautiful dyed fabric.
Students folded and dyed paper to create their own shibori-style art. The results…beautiful! There was much oohing and aahing as everyone carefully unwrapped their dyed papers.
