Second and Third Grade Kente Cloth

In this lesson, the students learned about the history and characteristics of Kente Cloth from Ghana. They also learned about how it is made by hand using a large loom. The students then created their own Kente Cloth inspired artwork. They first created two different paintings. For the first painting, they used black paint on colored construction paper to create a painting with a pattern using line. For the second painting, they created a variety of colorful patterns on another piece of colored construction paper. The students then wove the two paintings together to create one artwork. Their Kente Cloth paintings are each beautiful and unique.
