Students learn embroidery, cross-stitch, knotting, and braiding, skills that support strong communication between the left and right hemispheres of the brain, and require precision, fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and patience. Students are also introduced to basic color theory. Over the course of the year, students design several pieces using mirror images and colors schemes. After the pieces have been made, students often hand-sew them onto pillow coverings or pencil cases.
Fourth graders continue their work with clay and sculpt an animal of choice for their final projects.
