Native African studies fascinate and educate no matter what the age. Kids love to learn about fascinating tribes and peoples. What would enhance an African study more than having your students create awesome African style shields? Damon Reinagle utilizes basic, simple shapes to establish the ground work for drawing classic shield designs. Through step by step instruction, students can successfully create these images for reports, class room displays or just for fun to paint or color in with oil pastels, crayons or colored pencils.
These drawings teach young artists about symmetry, patterning, shape, proportion and drawing technique! These African images can be utilized to stimulate the creative juices of 3rd graders right on up through middle schoolers.
