Who hasn't dreamed of seeing the natural beauty of Africa? Designs painted on bark cloth or tapa cloth are some of the most colorful folk art in the world.
Research traditional African art forms, textiles, and designs in library books or on the Internet.
Cut a large brown paper bag into a square or other shape with Crayola® Scissors. Soak the paper in water.
Cover your work area with newspaper. Wring out the wet bag in a sink. Dry flat by placing a heavy object on top of the bag. When dry, it will look like bark cloth or tapa cloth, a common fabric made with tree pulp.
Using Crayola Classic Fine Line Markers, create a design on your tapa cloth with patterns found in nature and in African art.
Finish your design by coloring it in with Crayola Watercolors and Watercolor Brushes. Dry.
