About this Class:
This will be my 4th year teaching this class at Allied Arts and it has been an absolute blast every year! I switch up the projects but each day we study a different country and create artwork based on that country.

We will start the class with a daring where each child has the opportunity to talk about their family culture. Everything from the foods a family eats to what they do on the weekend is a part of their culture and should be seen as valuable. Children will be encouraged to express their beliefs and creativity throughout this class and are expected to be respectful to those they disagree with ♥

In the past we have studied:
- India - Studied traditional henna designs
- Africa - Drawn African women, created African American quilts
- Egypt - Made papyrus rolls with hieroglyphics
- Italy - Talked about the refugee crisis (two teens did a presentation of what a refugee is) and we made boat collages
- Russia - Russian dolls
- Japan - Simplified Painting with non-traditional tool
- Brazil - Drawing of houses on the hilliside
- Mezo America - Learned about print making

And at the end of class each day, if students finish early they will have the option to create a mini project. Past mini projects have been Japanese stab bound books with poems in 4 different languages, paper cranes and more.
