Students in Art Foundations showed off their creative side by making string art.  It took thumbtacks, yarn, and a lot of imagination to turn their ideas into works of art. 

Students used newspaper to sketch their subject.  They then used thumbtacks to hang it up on the wall.  Once they removed the newspaper, the students used yarn to make masterpieces.  It didn't happen overnight.  It took several class periods for students to tie the yarn around the thumbtacks.

The projects included squirrels, basketballs, sharks, and hot air balloons.  Scroll down and check out these really cool pictures.
