School-Wide Art Project at DMA

Ms. Jenny’s art classes have undertaken a school-wide project! Our students are making sketchbook covers using collaged paste paper, inspired by author Eric Carle, as well as artists Friedensreich Hundertwasser and Henri Matisse.

After Thanksgiving break the students will be begin binding their books to use as visual journals to use for the remainder of the year. Upper Elementary and Adolescents will learn to professionally bind their own books!  However, in Kindergarten and Lower Elementary we are looking for some extra hands to help bind the books.

If you’d like to help just drop Ms. Jenny an email and come learn basic book binding techniques on Thursday afternoons or Fridays!
