May 8 Project: Bark Cloth (Asian Pacific American Month)
With respect and recognition to Asian Pacific American Month, we will be creating a “bark cloth” textile using butcher paper, crayons, and markers. This project was initially designed by a teacher in Hawaii to connect students to their heritage and culture. Pacific Island cultures used bark to make clothing and other textiles until the turn of the century when colonists brought cotton to their region.
Students will use butcher paper, crayons, and markers to create a “bark cloth” textile. All supplies are provided.
Join us outside of The Arts Center!
