Fun With Fabric: Monte Vista School’s Students Learn About Fiber Arts

In building a new art program at Monte Vista School, it was important to bring all of the different media experiences to the new art room. A sequenced fiber arts curriculum is essential to any art program. Fiber arts offer unique fine motor skills, experience with non traditional looms, tactile materials, and yields high student engagement. During their first year at Monte Vista, Art Specialists Wendi Everett and Heather McSwiggin introduced all grade levels to fiber arts, with basic weaving, sewing, 2D and 3D needle felting as a capstone for the middle school age students.


Against the Odds: Pioneering Women of Monterey County

Whether labeled “hell on wheels,” “pillars of the community” or “agents of change”, the energy, wisdom, and courage of the women featured in this exhibition were forces to be reckoned with during their lifetimes. Their accomplishments and contributions to the betterment of Monterey County communities underlie countless local ordinances, institutions, and civic benefits that we take for granted today.

This exhibit scratches the surface in presenting a glimpse of the many prominent women who have contributed to Monterey County’s rich history. We hope their stories will inspire today’s women in pursuing their dreams and goals, and will encourage families to preserve photos, documents and mementos of their own “pioneer women.”
