K.T. Murphy Diversity Quilt

 We are kicking off the process of making a K.T. Murphy Diversity Quilt!

The K.T. Murphy Diversity Quilt is a community art project that will be displayed in K.T. Murphy for years to come to symbolize that K.T. Murphy School is a place for EVERYONE. You don’t want to miss out! Please ask your child about it and check their folders for the letter and paper for the quilt. We are hoping our quilt will represent ALL of our K.T. Murphy families!

Students will bring home the letter about the project along with a white paper square to use to create a piece of the quilt as pictured above.  Each square will represent a K.T. Murphy family. The label is on the back side of the paper. Please do not make any artwork on this side. One goal of this project is to create a visual representation of the diverse cultures at K.T. Murphy School. Parents, family members and students can work together, or independently on the artwork.  All artwork has to be flat.  Collages, drawings and paintings are all acceptable.

Each family has the choice to participate and decide how to represent themselves. We are hoping you feel inspired to share part of your story and show how diversity makes our school, community and world stronger.

Please hand in all artwork on the squares provided by April 17, 2017.

CELEBRATE DIVERSITY-MAKE ART!
