India!

This month we are studying India. Their geography, people & populations, art and cooking. As part of what we learned about their culture, we created black glue paintings of our favorite Goddesses. First, we took regular glue mixed with black acrylic paint for the outline. Then we filled it in with acrylics. This is what we ended up with! Ganga, the goddess of the Ganges River, Sarasvati, the goddess of knowledge and the arts and Navagraha, the Nine Planets that are believed to influence and affect Hindus in their daily lives. Our art was inspired by The Little Book of Hindu Deities by Sanjay Patel.
