Bold Quilting

In Studio Art this past winter, 8th graders drew inspiration from Bisa Butler, a textile artist known for portraying unsung heroes using fabric pieces in vibrant colors.
Héctor shares how students "learned about Butler's work, the significance of quilting in communities, and the importance of portrait in art. They translated photos of celebrities and friends to a collage of fabrics using colorful patterns. The result, as you can see, is a cheerful combination of bold colors and patterns."
