So, the response to our Libs Elliott inspired cut paper quilt has been quite awesome. It's so wonderful to hear from educators, art lovers, and friends from around the world with positive feedback for our Zamo kids. I thought it would be cool to share how a few other art teachers have taken this project on in their own way with their own kids.

Wouldn't it be wild to see them all assembled together?

 This piece was done by Tiffany Floyd and her 4th grade students. I love the addition of the 
black border, too!

The 3 shots above are from Lauren Packard and her students in Brooklyn working away 
on their collaborative.

These 3 are from all the way Australia. Teacher Chani Crow did this with 9 classes. 
Pre-primary thru year 6.
 This one is by Cassandra Birchmeier and her middle school students
in Fenton, Michigan. 500 students participated and they each had 20 minutes
to contribute.

Just yesterday, one got started in Massachusetts with Brittany Lebold and Melissa Hayes. If anyone else out there is trying this one on, I'd love to see them.

Shine brite, everyone!


  1. I'll suggest to my students this collaborative project!
    Greetings from Italy ; )

  2. Thanks for the shout out! Brittany's been taking over as classes finish up units I started at the beginning of the year, so we're getting there. I can't wait to share our installation pictures with you.

  3. We did one in Lower Manhattan! 12 classes, Pre-K-3rd grade worked on it.

  4. I can't figure out where to send you photos but I posted some of ours on my blog (I made sure to credit you:) here they are:
