I was looking for a unique way to acknowledge Divali this year and came across this practice called Rangoli Art. This amazing video shows some artists at work creating some intricate designs using coloured chalk.
To mimic this result I got some simple rangoli designs and let the kids transfer them onto black paper. Once the designs were down they coloured them in using chalk pastels! It was the first time many of them used chalk pastels so of course there were multi-coloured hands and lots of smudging but it was a fun process and it's only our first foray into this new medium.
The results were stunning though... Shubh Divali... in advance!
Thursday Picassos took their turn at our Rangoli art project!
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 :)
