PYP 5 have enjoyed thinking from the perspective of the Warli and Gond tribal communities of India for their transdisciplinary unit on Migration. Having researched the customs, traditions and art of the tribal communities the students chose their interest groups. They then worked on an individual plan and story that depicted the lives of the tribal people. Next they got together, as a group, to create a collaborative wall friezes taking an idea from each member and drawing and painting on the walls of the art room as the tribal artists do.
The project lent itself naturally to a lot of “push and pull” (two of the underlying reason for migration) as the groups assigned roles and assumed responsibilities.
Please do find the time to drop by the PYP Art Room to view these vibrant pieces of work.
