Thanks for visiting!
LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT I acknowledge, with deep respect, that I am gathered on Treaty 7 territory. I acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for generations. I recognize the land as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.

Woven Painted Hearts


Perfect Valentine project that combines paint and weaving.

Students folded a large sheet of heavy white paper in half. 
They painted each side in different colours using tempera.


From one half they cut out a symmetrical heart. The other half they cut into their weft strips. 
They used a ruler to make even strips.


Then cut strips into the heart and weave the paper strips through it. 


  

Some Grade 4,5,6 finished hearts!
