Winter Art Camp: Woven Dream Flags for All



Young artists will be challenged to create a dream flag based on their dreams for the future of their world using the mediums of yarn, loom, recycled materials, cloth and other mediums. For this project, students will observe an interactive slideshow presentation about the timeless art of weaving on a loom using a variety of textiles.  Students will learn that different cultures around the world have created hand woven textiles for thousands of years. After observing the slideshow presentation, students will explore and compare how different cultures created textiles and discuss how they can take part in their future using United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a focus. 

Students will problem solve one creative way in which they can “leave no one in our world behind” and design their dream flag that show color choices; pattern; use of beads; ribbons; pipe cleaner; recycled materials and tassels. Students will learn how to loom, draw on cloth, watercolor, design, sew, tie knots and display their artwork as a collaborative piece for future art shows, in school and in the community. 

Scholarships are available.  Please email Davana at drobedee@schweinfurthartcenter.org for details.
