It is the race to the end now. The students have successfully carved and printed their favourite Adinkra symbol and painted African figures inspired by contemporary art. They are now embossing a piece of metal and combining all images on their 2 colour blend background. Next week we will be looking at composition and design principles which will help the students to create the best design possible with their images. In the last class we will add finishing details of painted frames a few patterns and beads.
I really like how many skills are being addressed whilst it offers the students an opportunity to learn more about the culture they live in. Hopefully this will be a piece they will want to keep for a very long time.
