Textiles of India: Stitches of Vitality

Institution ArtsConnectEd

This set is meant to help us to examine and survey the vibrancy and exquisite craftsmanship of the textiles of India.  Within this collection we begin to learn more about and appreciate the ancient and modern creations of these works of art.

Created for the ArtsConnectEd iPad Challenge #2, this set is intended to teach high school level art students about the traditional beauty of the art of Indian textiles.

After viewing this presentation as an anticipatory set, students will create their own India inspired textile piece using the embroidery techniques of Shisha (lesson plan and detailed instructions are included).  They will also learn how to use the ArtsConnectEd website and create their own Art Collector Set.

The detailed lesson plan, including the evaluation criteria, is attached as a PDF on the very last page of this presentation.  There is also a PDF worksheet that details how to do the Shisha Embroidery Stitch as well.
