We studied India during our Summer camp and we looked at their decorative folk art. One form in particular, rangoli, is very popular for both Hindi religious festivals and cultural celebrations.
1. Students can work individually or in groups depending on how big they want their design.
2. Draw out rangoli design in chalk first on the sidewalk.
3. Each student gets a few cups with colored sand/colored flour, and spreads it on the ground to color their design.
4. Remember to focus on symmetry when constructing the design, and use color patterns.
We shared a similar project last week on the Community Sidewalk art DIY with a varied emphasis.
This project was inspired by a project that Kid World Citizen shared on her blog.
