Paul Klee’s “Highway and Byways” was the inspiration for these pieces created by our Fourth Grade artists.

Second grade artists have been studying the work of American artist Faith Ringgold. They were intrigued by her famous Story Quilts and enjoyed reading the story and words that surround her quilts. Second graders learned how to weave paper to create their “quilt” and added stories about themselves to finish the piece. They created a [...]
