Sun Sandpaintings January 5, 2011

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 4:39 pm

The kindergarteners have just finished a unit on Native American art.  After comparing cartoon suns to photographs of the real sun, the students looked at how the Navajos drew the sun, and ultimately drew their own representation of the sun; some with faces, some looking like fire, others with wavy rays. They then learned how the Navajos created large sandpaintings on the ground, and tried sandpainting for themselves.
