ARTIST IN RESIDENCE: Miriam Block
Coming to RES -- March 2019
We are excited to announce that RES students will be working with Miriam Block, a textile artist and designer, during art classes. They will learn about the way textile designers use texture, color, and pattern to plan and create woven fabrics. This three week residency will be an amazing opportunity for students in pre-k - 4 grades to discover the many ways fabric is used in our lives. During this residency, students will have an opportunity to design and weave a fabric for a specific end use.
In order to support this residency we are SEEKING A FEW DONATIONS of supplies. If you have any of these supplies, or are willing to collect them over the next few weeks, it would be REALLY appreciated!
1. Recycled Netted Bags (from Lemons, Limes, Clementines, Potatoes, Oranges)
The best bags will have small even openings on the top (see picture to right).
2. Yarn, plastic strips, rope, ribbon
3. Old tablecloths or bed sheets (we will be cutting into strips)
