The Knifitti Project
The Knifitti Project – What do you get when you mix knitting and graffiti? You get knifitti! Students at two elementary schools in Hawthorne install knifitti art displays outside their schools as part of an adaptive art lesson. Adaptive art is when the teacher adapts skills to the level of the learner. Art teacher Joey Santiago works with fourth and fifth grade mainstream students at Jefferson Elementary and students with more special needs at Washington Elementary. The two schools are very different and they demonstrate the art skills by children with different abilities.
