NATIVE AMERICAN TEEPEE PAINTINGS

This semester's Art & Anthropology focus is Native Americans. For their first week studying Native Americans, Ms Rosaline's 1st and 2nd grade classes explored teepees!

Teepees were used by nomadic tribes of the Great Plains. They were built using long wooden poles and a buffalo hide covering. Teepees were just one of many types of houses used by different tribes.

Students also talked about visual elements to Native American designs, such as common shapes and colors. Each student painted their own individual teepee; then as a group painted a backdrop! Finally everybody's teepees were assembled together to create the final piece.


DESIGNS OF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST

Ms. Briana's Art and Anthropology explored the graphic lines and colors traditionally used in the artistic creations of the Indigenous Haida population of the Northwest Coast. Students were encouraged to draw inspiration from the culturally specific motifs and patterns seen in arts and artifacts, and to create their own patterns reminiscent of these.
