Adinkra are visual symbols, originally created by the Ashanti of Ghana and the Gyaman of Cote d'Ivoire in West Africa. They represent concepts or aphorisms and are extensively used in fabrics, pottery, logos and advertising. Year 5 have made their own stamps by imprinting symbols on polystyrene and card. Children then used their stamps to explore patterns with paint.

 

 

UPDATE:

Children have used their symbols to paint canvases
