Fabric Fractions : Art Project

Art can be made from all kinds of materials. One of my favorite non-traditional art materials is fabric. I think many people think of fibers as craft materials, but in my mind they are very much an art material.
For this project, participants had the opportunity to view a beautiful Native American Star Quilt on display at the Plains Art Museum in Fargo, North Dakota. They were encouraged to look at the small shapes that make up the larger shape of the star. They then headed to the studio where they were given 9x12 canvas tote bags and 2.5 inch squares of fabric to make their own work of art.
