African Cameroon lizards

Fun, patterned lizards created by my art club early in the morning. First, I offered either a pattern or they could design their own lizard. Second, they needed to create symmetrical designs with geometric shapes. After designs were created students used tempera paint to complete the vibrant look.

After project was dried students added beads and bottle caps, and thick twine to the border of the body. Students matted projects then added designs on the border. I love how all the projects were so vivid against the black paper.

    They also remind me of Australian art.

    Hi Laura,
    You always manage to help your students create African colours that are so authentic! I'm really loving all the art and craft ideas from around the globe – have you seen the projects on Crafty Crow this month? šŸ™‚
