After finishing their masks, second grade students studied another art form from Africa- textiles. We looked at Kente, Adinkra, and Adire. After learning about these three kinds of cloth we focused our attention on Adire- which is created with a resist dye method. Using rubberbands as our resist we tied them around a wet wipe and dyed the cloth with markers. Once the cloth was dry it was opened to reveal our own adire cloths! The cloth was used as a background for their masks.
