Every month I do a new art project tied to a culture. This Japanese Bamboo Art project is one of my favorite art activities.
I always like to tie my art projects to some type of learning. This one introduces kids to the importance of bamboo in the Japanese culture, and the many versatile uses of this incredibly strong plant. After reading a short passage (complete with close reading note taking space) students will create art!
Using different brush holding strategies, students will create their own bamboo art.
This packet also includes basic Japanese phrases for kids to practice and use all month!
The finished product looks great displayed during Open House.
