4TH Grade Tiny Weaving:
Started with a white piece of 80# paper (12X18)...students created an abstract painting on it. Splatter, smearing, using the top of the paint brush for texture and pretty much anything goes. On day 2 I used the paper cutter to make tiny 1/2 inch strips, while students chose a color of construction paper and created a loom making 1/2 space between the lines. We wove the painted strips through and then added magazine strips going horizontal. I cut all the tiny strips with the paper cutter, the students only cut their loom. This took us 3 classes.
