These are some sewing artists!!!! Plus they never walk into the studio – they run! The artists are sewing their scarves using the blanket stitch. They used interfacing on the flowers and now they are sewing them. For art history we studied “Fur Traders Descending the Missouri”, 1845 by Bingham. I defined “descending” and we discussed fur traders in the 1800′s. We found the Missouri on the globe, all 5 oceans, the equator, the hemispheres and other continents. Awesome! Then we got back to the sewing. Hopefully the girls can take the scarves home next week to work on them. Our next project is mixed media self portraits. Stay tuned.
