Moccasin Art Residency

South Ridge Sculpture students worked with Fond du Lac artists Karen Savage-Blue and Wendy Savage creating moccasins. Students learned to applique bead for their toe pieces as well as fit and sew their moccasins. It was lots of work but well worth it. South Ridge School Art Dept is sponsoring a “Rock Your Mocs” on the last day of third quarter. Everyone is encouraged to wear their moccasins in school. “Rock Your Mocs” is a national event begun in November 2011 (Native American History month). The creator loved wearing her moccasins. She saw the event as a way to unite and encourage Native Americans across the country. miigwech to South Ridge JOM parents and Essentia Health, Duluth for their generous support.
