Painted houses

Latest projects from the Art Club.  Student build little clay houses and then painted them after learning about the painted houses of Burkina Faso, a village in Western Africa.  The women of the village work together to adorn new homes with geometric design work prior to the new residents moving in.  Most of the work is done with black and white paint only although the ancient practice included the color red.  Learn more about the practice here.
