Afrique à la Suisse

What better way is there for kids to appreciate art from a different culture than by trying to reproduce it themselves? Below is an African-style wall hanging created by the girls and their classmates (ages 4 to 7) using dyes made from clay and dried leaves. It is approximately 2 meters wide by 2.5 meters long and hangs in the school entrance.

Bravo to the teachers and students of École de Corsier!
You never cease to amaze me.
