A Stunning Start to our Africa Topic!
To start our off our new topic on Africa, the children learnt about Edward Tingatinga. They located where Edward Tingatinga was born - Tanzania - on a globe before learning about his style of painting and how he began. The children then worked in the style of Edward Tingatinga beginning with mixing paint and painting a sunset. They then cut out silhouettes of an animal and the grasslands. Finally, they added white dots to the animal and stuck both silhouettes onto the sunset background. Have a look at their striking work!
