Shibori at Artspace

Originally uploaded by SOFennell

The joy and fascination of teaching kids, for me, is that they always do the unexpected. I love it. My stint at Artspace began this week ( only for this week) teaching middle school aged kids the “fine” art of shibori. I think most of us who are engaged in this activity agree that it is a fine thing to do (we love it so much!).

So far, the reaction has been that it’s a “cool thing” to do and I really had no idea how this would go over with this age group (so far, so good). We began with paper, just folding, clamping, then dipping, brushing or dyeing in food color. They caught on quickly. Then when their pieces dried they cut or tore them into pieces for a collage. Needless to say, I was quite pleased with the results.
