Y2 Elm - Art African Printing

We have been looking at Adinkra patterns this term that are used for printing on Traditional African textiles. We spent time looking carefully at the patterns and decided to design our own. It was great to see how the children interpreted words that they felt were important to their family (words like LOVE , CARE, PEACE and HAPPINESS ) and used these to create their own family symbol.  We also used some animal patterns and tried wax resist techniques with paint which were really effective too.
