This month in art class the 3rd graders are discovering different African Art practices. Korhogo cloth is a type of mud cloth made in Korhogo village, Ivory Coast, by Senufo people. The cloth is painted with fermented mud and its symbols tell the story.
We painted our paper "fabric" with tea and coffee paints.
We talked about the meaning of different symbols.
Each child reproduced one of the symbols that we glued on our "mud cloths".
