Mixed Media Around The World: Russia

June 12, 2017

In this term, the art program is exploring new and exciting destinations! In our first class, I introduced the students to the art of the Russian dolls "Matryoshkas". They are so beautiful and inspiring!



The children loved the Russian dolls and they all shouted that they have one at home! The following class, I asked parents to send along their Matryoshkas from home to show the other students.


                                               Different examples of painted Russian dolls.


                                              Wooden samples of Matryoshkas done by the students.


We have been having fun creating all kinds of Matryoshka dolls, with modelling clay, wood, fabrics and even illustrating a Children's Book using a Matryoshka doll as the main character.



 To finalize the lesson about Russian dolls, the children created a house for it out of a shoe box! They loved the idea so much! This photo says it all/
