Student Stories in Print
Helene Zawila is a part-time art teacher at South Whidbey High School. An artist in her own right, Zawila has a master’s degree in art education and recently taught overseas in Saudi Arabia. Her passion for art is evident in this video.
In this particular classroom project funded by the Foundation, students draw on and then carve linoleum blocks based on their own interests and how they view their world, utilizing symbols or drawings which are then stamped on fabric or paper.
The final pieces will be stitched together as a quilt and displayed in the High School gallery. Block prints will also be displayed at the May 30 South Whidbey Schools Foundation Dinner Gala.
