Several high school students are seated at tables.  Each of them are using knitting needles to fashion scarves. First year Art students work on their knitting skills.

First year Art students in Jennifer Smith’s classes at Holston High School are learning how to knit. While knitting is not a traditional art form, it requires hand-eye coordination, patience, and creativity as many other forms of art do. Choice of colors is also a component of the work.

Once the students complete their work, the finished scarves will be given to the guidance counselors at the county’s elementary schools. The counselors will then distribute the scarves to students who need them. The students enjoyed the high interest project and it will undoubtedly become a part of the class curriculum for the next several years.
