Here are the finished pieces for the "Faces of Bennett" Community Art Project. I had a wonderful time working with Bennett IB World School's Art teacher, Molly Babcock (of Masks at MOCA Fame) on this project. Each panel is created using cotton broadcloth as a background and the felted portraits sewn on to the front. Each 5th grader created a 'self portrait' for the piece that will be left at Bennett as a momento from the class of 2011.

Here are some pictures of my latest Community Arts Project. It is called "Faces of Bennett" I am working with kids at Bennett IB World School in Fort Collins, Colorado to create a school-wide tapestry of faces using felting techniques. The Graduating 5th Grade students are assembling the faces using facial features created by the Kindergarten-4th grade students. This is a great project to use to introduce Community Arts and also Fiber Arts. I will post finished pictures when the piece is assembled.
