STUDENTS MAKE PILLOWS USING ANCIENT FORM OF ART

Posted May 11 at 10:16pm

Batik is both an art and a craft, which is becoming more popular and well known as a wonderfully creative medium. The art of decorating cloth in this way, using wax and dye, has been practiced for centuries. The word batik originates from the Javanese tik and means to dot.  Mrs. Morais’ 8th Grade Art class designed, dyed, and assembled the pillows seen in the accompanying picture.  These students did a wonderful job and were proud of their work, as was Mrs. Morais.
