INSPIRED BY FRANK STELLA: Our first graders have been working on weaving with yarn. They have learned how to use circular looms and considered the aesthetic and pragmatic properties of woven fabric. They then asked the question: What happens if we try and weave with painted lines? It’s a question that the abstract artist Frank Stella contended with in his efforts to make the elements of a two-dimensional painting come to life in sculpture. Mr. Hepner and his first-grade artists demonstrate their version of this work of art and math on bulletin boards around SCCS.  Click here for more.
