Ms. Janjua's Grades 3-4 Art Class

April 20 - April 29, 2016 | Issue 13

Salaamu Alaykum!

Third and Fourth graders had a very exciting two weeks filled with all kinds of Islamic arts, mashaAllah! We finished our Islamic Geometry star clay tiles, had an incredibly inspiring introduction to Islamic calligraphy by Master Calligrapher, Ustadh Khalid Pablo Casado from Madrid, Spain, and we experimented with a marbling technique which produced some GORGEOUS results. We're excited to show photos of our work with you all. Enjoy! :)


Wa Salaamu Alaykum,

Marbling Technique

Students were introduced to a marbling technique using oil paints in turpentine mixed with water. We explored properties of how oil repels water to create a resist technique which resulted in our beautifully marbled prints! Next week inshaAllah we will be adding calligraphy to our prints.
