EEHSP Artist-in-Residence for Enfield, Textile Artist Gabrielle Kanter






Textile Artist, Gabrielle Kanter is coming to Enfield School as this year’s EEHSP Artist-in-Residence! Gabrielle will be teaching the students a centuries-old “wet felting” technique that has been used to make tents, clothes, artwork, and much more. Every student will create a unique design by layering different colors of loose wool and transforming them into a single piece of artwork.

Gabrielle’s project starts February 25th in the art room and she and art teacher, Mrs. Klein, are requesting volunteers to assist the kids with the process. We will be working with each class on different days over two weeks.
