Shout out to Denise Manzione, BTSALP Arts Coordinator in Tooele School District and the students at Vernon and Ibapah Elementary Schools. Both of these schools are 2 room school houses in farm/ranch communities. Students were studying wool and how it is processed (in Ibapah quite a few already knew because they raise sheep). Wool was purchased from Utah’s Ag in the Classroom, but some of the students offered to run home and sheer a sheep if we needed more! The wool was dyed using Kool-Aid and coffee. Then students created faces and rolled it between sheets of bubble wrap to wet felt it. Their patience was tried because it took quite a bit of time to get a finished art piece, AND the bubble wrap was just calling to them to be popped! This was a fun project and they learned they have an art resource right in their backyards!
