Borders and Batiks!

Yesterday students started working on the borders for the streetlight banners that will be on the riverbank in Saskatoon. 25 total will be chosen and put up. Here are some pictures of what some grade seveners have so far:

The borders will be repeating and (if the students listened) have lots of connected swirls. The artwork is inspired by the work of William Morris. Each one will be customized to the play of which their quote is from.

We also have been working hard on our "Mystery Man". His identity we be revealed when he is finished, but until then, we will keep posting pictures:

On top, we have him posing with two the students here (Don't worry! There won't be any brown splotches when we're done!). And the bottom photo shows the design we are using for his clothing.

The spirit-stirring drum, the ear-piercing fife,
The royal banner, and all quality,
Pride, pomp and circumstance of glorious war!
