The United Republic of Tanzania is an East African country bordering the Indian Ocean and has over 100 ethnic tribes, of which the Maasai tribe is the most eye-catching. The Maasai are known for their Shuka cloth, that is affectionately known as the “African blanket.”
In this interactive art project, students will design a Shuka cloth using art paper, markers, and pencils. Once the Shuka design is completed, they will create a collage of a warrior wearing their designed cloth."
