Create a beautiful West African Adinkra Cloth and learn about the culture of the Ashanti people. Get bold results with Crayola® Colored Pencils and Watercolor Paints.
Adinkra cloth is a hand-printed fabric made in Ghana, which is located in West Africa. They are cloths made by the Ashanti people that tell stories or express thoughts and feelings. There are many Adinkra symbols and each of them has different meanings. Use books or the internet for a list of Adinkra symbols and their meanings.
On a piece of Crayola Marker & Watercolor paper, have students use a ruler and a Crayola Colored Pencil to draw a decorative border around the paper. Draw lines to create four boxes.
Students choose an Adinkra symbol and draw it with a Colored Pencil in one of the boxes in a repetitive pattern. They should do the same with a different symbol in each box.
Finish the Adinkra cloth by painting over the colored pencil symbols and lines with Crayola Watercolor Paint and Brushes. Combine several watercolor colors when painting the background.
