"I'm thinking while I'm sewing." Dagny
Today was the first time Dagny has sewn this year and she took to it right away! In the morning she participated in a Tucker Room sewing experience and came to KW with a lot of ideas. Initially, she did a variety of hand sewing mixed media items. At that point, she and Tegan collaborated by taking turns on a swing project.
Tegan - What I think she was making is a purse. Dagny, do you want to sew along this side?
Dagny - There are no holes in it. It's perfect.
Along with the purse, Dagny also sewed a bracelet and a message for Maisie. Tegan went on to sew a book with interesting textured papers. There was so much creativity on display in the sewing area today. Tommy sewed a walkie-talkie, and Maisie stitched the stem to a flower in her book. Although also involved in painting and collaging, Hugh also added to a previous hand sewing project.
Children also worked on various dresses inspired by our field trip to the Rodarte exhibit. Lily traced two of the dresses that were projected onto easel paper. She then painted and added feathers to one of the drawings to give it a fluffy feeling. Hugh and Tommy added to the large paintings they created on Tuesday. Today they added fabric and paper to provide some texture to their creations. Tommy also drew a security guard near his fabulous dress! Louise and Grace spent time adding color and jewels to the dresses they had drawn at the museum. From there, several children moved on to watercolors to re-create fancy dresses, or just explore the medium.
