Finally finding some time to focus on the Tide Pool Project. Its a bigger undertaking than I originally thought and I have had very little time to devote to promoting it this past year- which is why I am extending the deadline to January 15th 2011. Above are some submissions that I hope will inspire you to participate in this global collaborative. For more information please visit the Tide Pool Project's official blog.
Here are a couple of Sea Life collages made by 5th graders at North Star Elementary. I've been working with them on and off since October. These are postcards made of muslin with paint and printed papers. The images are contact paper transfers. They worked really hard on them and were able to take them home before Christmas break to give as gifts to family or friends. More of their collages will be worked into a large textile panel and will form a mosaic of sorts. It will hang at the school until the end of the year and will later be included in an exhibition at the Kodiak Wildlife Refuge Visitors Center.
