I've been seeing Karen Kamenetzky's images on pinterest for about a year now. I've always thought the colors and organic feel to the images were captivating, but I didn't know anything about Karen or her art. Finally, after the December break, we were searching for a few new projects to do. We came across one of her images and decided to do this with our third graders. Her work is based on microscopic/cell images. Please visit her online gallery to see her fiber art, so inspiring!! http://www.karenkamenetzky.com/index.html She also has a fantastic blog; http://blog.karenkamenetzky.com/. With this project we each took a different approach, changed things as we went, added in last minute materials. It was really a discovery lesson for the students and us as well. I absolutely love that each student really has a very unique look to their art. This is just a sampling of what we have done, I plan to post more images.
