Spring String Art

"String Art Reproducible Patterns" by Annette Schmidt,
1998 Frank Schaffer Publications Inc.

The spring semester is the perfect time for String Art in the art room!  I discovered this great string art pattern book a few years ago.  Some patterns are a bit advanced, so I simplified the ideas for 7th graders.

We used black railroad board and solid or muliti-colored crochet thread.
We then matted them with coordinating construction paper.
