Candy Corn in the Art Room

Candy CornChildren naturally bring their excitement into art class and, with a student-directed art program, they are able to follow their interests. Halloween is coming up this weekend and is certainly on students’ minds. One girl decided to make a weaving about Candy Corn. Her work demonstrates her understanding of tapestry weaving, where shapes of different colors can be joined together by interlocking stitches. You can learn more about tapestry weaving by watching Blue Acorn Woolens’ video. We watched the last five minutes to see how to weave with multiple colors.  A second video, below, shows Candy Corn in-process. This weaving inspired many other Candy Corn weavings throughout the last several weeks!
