Any ideas for an art project that takes several hours to complete? I'm looking for something the kids can take out and work on when they have free time.

What age group are you teaching? Is this for art class or regular classroom instruction?

I am currently finishing yarn weavings with all of my fourth grade classes. They can hardly wait to enter the art room each week to work on these. It takes several art classes to finish depending on how large you cut the loom. I cut the yarn in strips that are about 8 inches longer than the width of the loom so each piece is woven in individually and the weaving is fringed on both sides. They could be worked on in their classrooms during recess but you'd probably have to send a box of yarn with them and restock it during the week. They are all going in the art show. I limited the colors to 4 and each one is very beautiful.

Question about the loom

Is the loom a piece of heavy cardboard? with notches cut into it? I think this would be a good idea for my class too.
Do they work on one as a group project or is it individual?
Thanks for the awesome idea, augusta!

The idea of precut yarn helps with the "pulling" in at the middle!

When I was younger we made placemats/large dish trivets out of yarn and a loom made of cardboard with notches. After we wrapped all the yarn in and out of the notches, we tied small pieces of yarn at every corner, then took the placemat off the loom. Has anyone heard of this? If so, do you remember dimensions, amount of notches, etc.?

If you are looking for something that will take several days, try an intoroduction of Native American art and focus on the Navajo, weavings for instance, or many of the Pueblo societies (Zuni, Cochiti, etc.) The Pueblo are most famous for their storyteller dolls.
Good luck,

Tessellations usually take quite a bit of time. I do some with doves, dogs and salamanders. The kids really like them and they always do a great job.
