Kinders Quilt Portraits

Finders are learning about Quilts, and the artist Gustave Klimt. I am a fabric artist, so quilts are dear to my heart. I showed them one quilt that I made for one of my sons when he was born.  We talked about all of the tiny pieces of fabric, and many stitches.We have Read several story books about quilts. (I Love to Read Month!) We drew a bundled quilt and crayoned patterns on it. Next we are watercoloring over the patterns to create a crayon resist. It seems like magic to see the crayon color glow through the paint! Come back for more!
