Mixed Media Around The World- Russia

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 them 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 approaches to paint Matryoshka Dollls

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