We will begin our cultural art units by studying the ancient Egyptians.
K and 1 will explore the cat goddess, Bastet, and complete a Bastet mixed media project.
2 and 3 will study the patterning on Wesekhs, or broad collars, with amulets. They will create a beseech out of a paper plate.
4 and 5 will study ancient hieroglyphics and the rules that governed the depiction of the human figure in ancient Egypt. They will create their own god or goddess and create a cartouche of their name.
