The Texas Quilt Museum Features
Kids Art Exhibit
The Texas Quilt Museum is now displaying students’ artwork from two Fayette County elementary schools: 5th grade students from Flatonia and 4th grade students from Round Top-Carmine.
The students selected and colored pages from noted quilt artist and teacher Hollis Chatelain’s coloring book based on her exhibit, Stories of West Africa. Pages from the coloring book allowed students to offer their creative interpretations of Chatelain’s quilts. Students from Flatonia visited the Museum on January 31. They had the opportunity to see their artwork displayed, view Chatelain’s quilts, and learn about the culture, customs, and people of West Africa. The Kids Art Exhibit and Chatelain’s quilts will be on display until March 17.
The Texas Quilt Museum invites all schools to participate in field trips to the Museum, or to schedule a visit via Skype. The Museum’s next educational exhibit will feature the colorful, animal-themed quilts of Taiwanese artist Danny Amazonas, and will be a wonderful way to learn about Taiwanese culture.
