Lessons in Soft Sculpture

Fourth-graders in Lotspeich art teacher Jody Knoop’s class studied and practiced the art of soft sculpture, which is part of Lotspeich’s fourth-grade curriculum. Knoop’s lesson included designing, sewing, and stuffing garden gnomes, which even incorporated felted wool from Knoop’s sheep, Lana. “Knowing how to sew and assemble can be useful in so many life situations,” said Knoop. “These gnomes were a perfect subject, they received a lot of hugs, and we had a blast while acquiring some great skills!”
