Judith Scott

 Judith Scott
 The Third grade artists learn of the work of the artist Judith Scott.  Judith Scott is a fiber artists who wrapped forms with strings and fabric to create unusual and beautiful sculptures.  Judith was born with Downs Syndrome and lived most of her life in an institution until her twin sister took her to California to live with her.  There Judith was enrolled in art classes and took off creating sculptures. The art world noticed Judith's work and art collectors and museums all over the world collect and exhibit her sculptures.
