Artolazzi: Warm/Cool Suns: 'In Art class, 4th graders studied different types of lines while creating these sun drawings. Students also had to show an understanding of warm and cool colors while they were coloring their designs with markers'. *Thank you to my friend over at "what's happening in the art room" blog for this idea!*

These books are made of colorful yarn strings attached to a main cord, and instead of letters or numbers, they used knots! Lets learn how they were done.
