African Necklaces

I saw the perfect lesson on Pinterest for my third grade African art unit.  It was from Once upon an Art Room.  Here is the link: 
 We looked at the beautiful beaded collars created by the Maasai tribes.  Each student created their own pattern using lines and shapes.  Next, the pattern was transferred to a paper plate and painted using tempera paints.  We are lucky to have a visiting artist who will be teaching our students about African drumming.  The students will look great wearing these at the assembly!
