I’m just back from an artist residency at the Pomerene Center in Coshocton, Ohio. I love getting to share my art with kids, challenging them to see unusual materials as art, and helping them to make their own art.
During this residency, I worked with about 250 3rd and 4th graders to help them make fabric “people” using their own cast off clothing. The kids worked in groups of 3-5 to make body parts for the figures. Then I assembled all the parts into complete figures. The kids also got to see some of my work in a show that’s up in one of the art center’s galleries.
We made a total of 10 “people”. Here are two. You can see photos of the works in progress here.

Fantastic, fantastic! I can’t stop looking at those figures! And I admire your stamina in working with 250 children!
May we see photos of your work that is in one of the art center’s galleries?
The link didn’t help me find the images at the gallery site.
I think they must have updated their website and the photos are gone. 😦
