Kindergarten Zulu Baskets

Kindergarten artists learned an African Zulu song in music class and looked at beautifully woven Zulu baskets in the art room. Each artist drew a basket and repeated some of the lines, shapes, and colors we have been learning about to create a pattern.
Watercolor paint was used over the oil pastel patterns for a watercolor resist method.

The Zulu baskets are woven, so Kindergarten artists learned how to weave using paper.

When finished with their weaving, artists cut and glued their patterned baskets to the weaving.
