2nd Grade-Jasper Johns Number Quilt

The 2nd Grade students created a brilliant numeric artwork through the study of Jasper Johns. We looked at examples of Johns' work and noticed how he was able to take ordinary things we look at everyday-like numbers-and turn them into beautiful artworks. Students enjoyed coming up with patterns and using their creativity to jazz up their number work. They are displayed in a quilt-like format to capture the viewer and draw him/her in.
