The Carnival season is fast approaching and I feel like this term only just started but here we are jumping right into Carnival mode! As we all know Moko Jumbies are an exciting and intriguing part of Carnival culture. The Picassos got a bit of history on what influences brought them to our shores and what they symbolize and then we got right down to watching this short clip of children their age who are learning the Moko Jumbie skills!
Their task today... to draw and paint a Moko Jumbie. To do this they had to decide on their composition... where is the Jumbie doing his dance, what is in the background? They also had to come up with his pose and costume or clothes. Then of course they decide if they will draw one Moko Jumbie or a group. Take a look at what they produced.
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
