Visual Arts – Fiber Artist
Peg McDade’s residency for teachers and students, 4th through 12th grades, offers opportunity to engage in the fiber arts. Peg presents techniques of handweaving, stitchery and finishing processes. Students design a fiber work, manipulating a wide range of plants/animal fibers or found objects. Resulting artworks may become a collaborative or treasured individual work. Peg provides simple looms. With NEIU 19/PCA support, benefitting schools are: Abington Heights, Delaware Valley Middle School, Forest City Regional Intermediate, Mountain View, Old Forge Middle School, Saint Jude Mountaintop, and Scranton High School.
