artist residency...Lisa Klakulak

We are so very lucky to have a PTO that truly believes in and supports the arts!....The 4th and 5th graders are continuing their trip around the world and have landed in Mongolia, where they are learning about the art of felt making from Lisa Klakulak, an internationally known felt artist from Asheville, NC. Ms. K taught all grades the science behind making art out of wool, and taught them how to make felted eggs, that will be filled with small objects brought from home. Finished eggs will be placed in giant felted nests, embellished by the young artists, each representing the idea that we are all one small part of a larger community. I will post more about our project next week, as it nears completion. You can learn more about Lisa, and her fascinating work on her website, www.strongfelt.com.
