Jewell Elementary School Art Quilts Installation

Jewell Elementary Parent Teacher Organization funded an all-school Artist in Residence with local artist Debra Fisher. The residency was March—May 2016. Students of all 23 classes, kindergarten—fifth grade, learned positive/negative design concepts, creating an original design, cutting paper patterns, building block prints and printing on fabric. The work of all 520 students was assembled into two 64” x 66” and one 48” x 50” quilts. The three quilts were hung in Jewell’s media center this June as a permanent installation.
