Paper Weavings

The 4th graders painted an 18x24" paper abstractly. In the next class they cut their paintings into strips for weaving. We looked at Native American looms and learned weaving terms like "warp" and "weft." They had the option of trading strips or using some provided solid or patterned strips. They weaved the strips fastening with glue and then were able to collage art materials on top of their weavings.
