Second Graders are continuing their study of African art through creating their own clay Akan Akuaba Dolls. The Akan tribe is from the country of Ghana, and artisans make these dolls as a symbol for a husband and wife's wish for a baby. The dolls are in the shape of the ankh, an ancient Egyptian symbol which means life. Students are about to start sculpting their dolls out of clay, and then will add color with glaze. Here are students with their finished drawings, ready to start clay next week.
