Every year since 1997, textile artist Ellen Oppenheimer has worked with hundreds of students to create a masterpiece. She guides them through the design process—dying the fabric, sewing the quilt blocks, and finally, piecing them together. Along the way, kids learn about measuring, geometry and color theory.
These quilts have become a symbol of Peralta. They are an example of how many different hands, working together, can create something beautiful. They also show how art is integrated into our curriculum.
Over the years, thousands of children have worked on quilts with Ellen’s skilled guidance. This year’s quilt is stunning: It features a diamond pattern in deep magenta, blue and black.
At Peralta in Bloom on May 16th, one lucky raffle winner will take it home!
