Arts In Stark - Kimono Project

Using paint, paper and some simple tools, elementary students and their accompanying adults created amazing designs, which were used to create kimono inspired original stationary. Artists Nola and Haidi Haiss developed the techniques and facilitated the class. Between stages, Andrew Magrath, who spent three years teaching in Japan, used props and photos to give the group a glimpse into Japanese culture. The class will be repeated, only in three sessions, for Girls Together participants. This project is sponsored by Arts in Stark, who awared a mini-grant to underwrite the costs of the project.
