The day before Thanksgiving, the Metro Arts Print & Craft class presented Jenny Quinn with a quilt that they made for her and her baby. Students created individual fabric squares using the cyanotype process and drawings they created. The images all focussed on the "woodland" theme that Ms. Quinn is using in her nursery. Then the class worked together to stitch it all into a quilt for Jenny's baby. Print & Contemporary Craft teachers Seth Kasselman and Betsy Rosenmiller assisted the students in making the quilt.
As a fun activity to get the year started Stephanie Carrico's Advanced Photo class took photographs of fruit being dropped into water.
After the faculty meeting on Wednesday, April 4th, Betsy Rosenmiller led the staff in a 1 hour workshop on making resin jewelry. We embedded natural materials like tiny branches and flowers, written text and even a little glitter! Ms. Rosenmiller has been making resin jewelry with the Metro student Craft Club and decided to share the process with the staff.
