Cross-Curricular Art

Students With Their Plush Monsters thumbnail208201

Islip High School students in Ali Catalano’s Fashion class recently helped bring Sherwood Elementary students’ ideas to life through a unique cross-curricular art project.

This project began when fourth and fifth grade students in Audrey Cella's and Chelsea Haupert's classes at Sherwood Elementary drafted their own "monster" designs, using paper and crayons. The fashion students then collected the 21 designs, and after much cutting and stitching, created plush, stuffed creatures based on the drawings. The plush monster creations were then presented to the Sherwood students upon completion in mid-November. It was a joyful, cross-curricular celebration that joined students whose paths would not ordinarily overlap in a traditional school day.
