Art plays an important part in the life of traditional Africa. An artist is a respected person, and the things artists make are used every day and become part of people’s lives. This fun KidsArt unit celebrates the traditional arts of Africa, including activities in:
- The people and places of Africa
- African masks
- African wildlife
- Embossed metalwork
- Adinrka and Adire Eleko fabrics
- Gold weights of Ghana…and lots more
All KidsArt art teaching units bring you 16 reproducible pages of hands-on art activities. The projects are simple, innovative and easy to use in home or classroom settings. Because the activities are open-ended, teaching the process rather than a specific product or end result, they can be used with many different ages and stages of development, from preschool through middle school.
