Some First Graders are make big 3-D Asmat shields for the Art Show in April. We looked at slide presentation about the Asmat people of New Guinea. We studied their shields as works of art. The children are using shapes similar to the actual shields. After drawing a line down the center they are making the sides symmetrical.,by drawing the same shape on both on both sides.
Here are a few shields with the beginnings of tempera paint.
