We looked at quilt paintings from artist Faith Ringgold.  We discussed how the pieces of painted paper and cloth combined to make a quilt that told a story.

We will plan and draw our artwork expressing ideas about doing things together in pieces like a quilt that tells a story.

Day 2:

We added to our story by using the everyday object drawings along side the drawings of doing things together.  Students used their choice of  crayons, markers, oil pastels and pencil to finish the story quilts.   We enjoyed an artwalk and talking about what we were doing in our story quilts.  Here are some in progress examples and finished works of art follow:
