National Flowers Embroidered Collaborative Piece
As a global community, the Middle School students embarked on a creative journey to produce a collaborative piece of artwork that was composed of individually handcrafted pieces.
- The technique adopted was embroidery, which allowed the students to work independently.
- The theme of the composition was Flower Power.
In the 1960s, flower power was more than a design aesthetic. Flowers were symbols of peace and love. It was also decided that a butterfly was to be added as a central piece as this symbolized transformation and change—a process that all the Middle School students go through.
To make the composition a truly personal piece of work for the Middle School, students were able to choose a flower that had special significance to them and their families. National Flowers of various countries were selected as a theme. March celebrates United Nations World Wildlife Day which celebrates the world’s flora and fauna and it was fitting that it was also the month of the Post Oak Gala.
