Parents as Arts Partners

This quilt was made by parents and students of P.S. 135Q, The Bellaire School

.  Each family worked on an individual panel representing their own rich cultural heritage.

The panels were then placed together on a large background with images of caring hands holding “us” together and silhouettes of people of all different colors representing our cultural diversity.  In the center of the quilt, we made our school P.S. 135Q with our motto, “The School That Cares” proudly displayed.

A special thanks to The Center for Arts Education for funding this project and Ida Owens and Ms. Dimitracopoulos the cooperating teachers.
