Namaste and Welcome to India

Rangoli is a traditional decorative folk art of India. These are decorative designs made on floors of living rooms and courtyards during Hindu festivals.


Today as part of exploration into Indian culture we created our own Rangoli designs. Working with artist Carlene, we sketched our patterns on paper, then moved outside and used chalk and flower petals.

  1. What beautiful art work you all created. I can't wait to see what you do this week with Carlene and Mrs Morris (and the seniors). Mr H.
