After finishing work on the drawing and digital graphic design portion of the 6th grade animal and plant cell project, Art Tech students have begun to create cloth pillows modeled after their cell drawings. Students in the photos shown here are using cloth, thread, needles, and polyfill stuffing to develop the basic forms of their cells. Once the pillow form is complete, students will refer to their cell drawings (such as the ones below) as they design the organelles, which will be cut from scraps of cloth and affixed to the pillows with fabric glue.
