Third grade artists have begun their study of Middle Eastern Art, our Cultural Focus for this school year. We began by comparing and contrasting Middle Eastern architecture with buildings that we are familiar with here in Michigan. Everyone was fascinated by the domes and arched doors of the Middle Eastern mosques, and could hardly wait to begin their own drawings, especially the fantastic “onion domes” that look like Hershey kisses.
Since I really wanted the beautiful drawings to stand out, we added our color to the background – with great results!
This project was inspired by “Fireworks” on Kajakas’ Photostream via Flickr. See it here.
