Mrs. Famiglietti's Art Room

John Adams Elementary School

The school year started off with a collaborative mural created with individual artwork from every student in the school in grades K-4.   

Students studied the patterns, shapes and colors of different quilts and created their own paper square patch which was then added to a nearly school-wide collaborative paper quilt. There are about 500 squares in all! 

The JA Paper Quilt. We are Unique, and We are One!
