EASTCHESTER, N.Y. -- Students at the ANDRUS Early Learning Center in Tuckahoe recently completed a large quilt following an eight-week arts education course.

ArtsWestchester teaching artist Randy Frost recently volunteered to teach the class and helped put together the 18-textile quilt highlighting each child's hand-print and birth date, according to a news release from the center.

"Each child was allowed to develop their own textile to add to the quilt," representatives said in the release. "They put their hand print and birth date on each individual square. During the process, children were introduced to new vocabulary that was centered on quilting and they were exposed to different literature during the process."

The project came together in part because of Frost's experience and knowledge teaching art, representatives said in the release.

"Frost has been a teacher for many years, beginning with painting classes for children," according to the release. "She has also worked with children, adults, special needs populations, and seniors, creating quilt projects that are tailored to their themes and programs."
