Project Title: Knitted Circle Looms for Fiber Art Projects
Teacher: Mitch McGuire
School: All elementary schools in District 206
Students Impacted: approximately 600 4th and 5th-grade students
Amount Funded: $8,856
Minnesota’s newly-released art standards require elementary students to demonstrate how to weave art materials. These looms will be used to implement a fiber art project to meet these standards in an innovative way. Fiber art is a great material to build fine motor skills through creative education.
