“These are examples of my 9th & 10th grade students’ sculptural forms they created using Paverpol as an adhesive, or as a material to transform fibers into 3 dimensional forms. There were so many individual interpretations of the process, a sure sign that student voice and choice shines through their artwork.” – Christine Miller
