Macramé Miracle

Oakridge High School art teacher Sara Goodrich knows the importance of a diversified learning curriculum. She works hard to expose her art students to a variety of art styles. From sketches to landscapes to portraits, students experience a range of art styles in her class. But not all art is affordable to practice or teach. Macramé is a form of textile produced using knotting, rather than weaving or knitting, which most other textile art techniques use. Unfortunately, the materials involved in teaching and learning this art form are prohibitively expensive, so Sara thought outside the art box and applied for Western Governors Univerity’s Transforming Education grant, which she was awarded this week! Thanks to her work, Oakridge High School art students have even more to look forward to.
