Story Quilts March 28, 2013

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 6:27 pm

2nd graders just wrote short stories about themselves and a family member.  These self portraits were inspired by the story quilt, Tar Beach by Faith Ringgold.  Ringgold painted the famous quilt, and the continued to win a Caldecott Honor for translating her quilt into a picture book.  If you want to see (and read!) more 2nd grade work, plan to come to the Morse School Art Show, at Gallery 263!  The show will be up April 8-13th.
