For this term’s topic of ‘Africa’, 2J have studied the clothing traditionally worn all over the country. We looked into the colours, shapes and patterns before becoming dress designers ourselves! All of 2J designed bright and colourful dresses for our display and some even have repeated patterns
Continuing with our African art, we studied Ndebele huts in South Africa before designing our own. All of 2J appeared to enjoy using oil pastels and are concentrating hard to shade, use repeated patterns and a range of shapes in their designs.
African Mask Making! We started by exploring traditional African mask designs before actually designing our own mask. Then we made our masks out of salt dough. Next week we will be painting and evaluating our masks...watch this space!
