Fifth Grade artists learned about Asian Pagodas as they created these beautifully detailed drawings. After viewing many images of pagodas found in Japan and China, they began their drawings, including details they noticed such as upward curving roofs and many tiers, or sections.
Their fabulous drawings were mounted on the Japanese shibori paper that they created earlier. Learn more about our shibori paper here.
See more of these beauties at our Artsonia art gallery!
Georgetown artists have been learning about the art of Japan, China, and India. Third and fifth graders explored an ancient form of Japanese “tie dye” called shibori. In Japan, fabric is folded and tied in elaborate ways to create beautiful dyed fabric.
Students folded and dyed paper to create their own shibori-style art. The results…beautiful! There was much oohing and aahing as everyone carefully unwrapped their dyed papers.
Their beautiful papers became the backgrounds for two more Asian inspired projects – Fifth Grade Pagodas and Third Grade Gyotaku Fish Prints. More to come on these projects soon!
