Campbellsville Elementary School students recently learned about quilting as an art form.
In Adrienne Hash’s art class, students discussed how quilting began in the United States in the 1700s.
Repeating lines, colors and shapes were used to make patterns for quilts.
Students learned that art might be nice to look at, but it can also be functional. Quilts are very pretty, Hash said, but also keep people warm.
After the lesson, students were given the chance to design their own quilt square. They colored their own pattern and then cut it out.
When finished, Hash taped all the squares together to make classroom quilts.
