Sewing and Giving

KIPP Ascend Primary fourth graders have been sewing away! Walk into Ms. Thomm’s art room during their class time and you’ll find students sitting at tables and on the carpet, talking and sewing, like a modern day quilting circle. After creating sewn food plushies for the current Children’s Museum of Art and Social Justice exhibition, they created little plushie creatures for another special group at school. The fourth grade art elective class delivered the hand sewn creatures to a Kindergarten class, giving each Kindergartner a plushie and reading them books. Thanks for the act of kindness, KIPPsters!
