Discovering Together

African Artwork

During Term 4, Amazon Class have been exploring African Art. We started by looking at the magnificent painting of South African artist, Esther Mahlangu, who creates bold, symmetrical artwork using repeated patterns. We then created artwork in the style of this artist.

We have also enjoyed making Batik bunting to decorate our corridor, observing the bright colours commonly seen on fabrics in Africa.

Finally, we explored the Maasai Tribe and their way of life in comparison to our own and created collar jewellery in the style of the tribe.
