Drawing with Thread

I'm still having a wonderful time at the art ed conference.


Only one session that I attended today was hands-on.



Blick art supply company led this one. It was based on the paintings of Wassily Kandinski.

We used Blick's liquid watercolor paint on several types of paper.



After collaging the papers on a stiffer background paper, we stitched on top of them. Here is a link to the lesson plan: http://cdn.dickblick.com/lessonplans/pdfs/drawing_thread.pdf

Here are the student samples that were presented:

Oh that looks cool! I could tie that in with my quilting. It says in the lesson plans that it is for grade 5-8. After doing the workshop do you think it could be modified for younger students?
