Course aim:
To provide students with an overview of the arts and crafts of Southern Africa and to encourage them to use the knowledge gained to produce their own work influenced in some way what they have seen.
Course description:
In this course we will look at images (and where possible actual examples) of arts and crafts produced in the sub-Saharan areas of Africa. We will look at common imagery, media used and cultural influences. You will then be encouraged to make your own arts or craft work in some way influenced by what you have seen. There will be a wide variety of media available and you will receive help in using them and in developing your ideas. This is a very friendly and supportive group where students share their work and experiences.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. List 5 countries in Southern (sub-Saharan) Africa.
2. State 3 different types of art or craft work commonly made there .
3. Give 1 example of how the wider culture/geographical aspects effects the art or craft work.
4. Choose a medium to use for my piece of art or craft work.
5. Create a piece of art or craft work influenced in some way by what I have seen and learned about.
