Saris, patterns and printing in 1st class

We have been looking at patterns around us in Art this month. We were very lucky to have Akshara and Akshata from 5th class bring in their Saris to show to the class. Can you believe that a Sari can be 5 metres long? We learnt lots about Hindu dress and traditions. We then spent some time printing and making our own patterns. We used fruit and vegetables. It was a bit messy but great fun!http://
