I was honoured to be a guest visiting artist at the Springs School in Springs, Long Island. I worked with seven classes throughout one school day (kindergarden to fourth grade, and eighth grade) to create a large, collaborative flag. Each class created a different element of the flag based on their skill level and capabilities. Art activities included print-making, beading, designing patches, and letter-making. With a focus on material exploration, students were introduced to found and recycled materials, as well as yarns, beads, and fabrics. We discussed flags, symbolism, and the school’s identity. Many of the students were introduced to the word collaboration for the first time (“It’s when we work on something together... Like a team! We are each creating a different piece of the final puzzle.”) We collectively decided to write the word “community” to encapsulate the feeling of the flag. The kindergardeners and the eighth graders helped put the whole flag together. It was a truly collaborative experience with nearly 150 students, and such a joy to see the project manifest throughout the day with the wide range of students! The flag will permanently live in the school’s hallways, and I hope that it serves as a symbol of their creativity, collaboration, and community.
