A 12 lesson unit of work with a powerpoint for each lesson with additional worksheets and differentiated print outs.
The project is aimed at 11 to 14 year old students and includes some great cross-curricular elements (shapes and geometry, geography and music).
Students learn about the fantastic art of the Ndebele people (from Southern Africa) and create their own individual modroc version including their own personal designs.
Using acrylic paint, they decorate the houses in the characteristic Ndebele style (an excellent book with images of this art form: http://www.hive.co.uk/Product/Margaret-Courtney-Clarke/Ndebele--The-Art-of-an-African-Tribe/1186558).
Students really enjoy the 3d making in this project, which covers a number of skills, as well as the bright colours that are characteristic of this style.
