This month we have been busy learning about traditional Islamic art from around the world. We like the geometric designs and all of the fancy colours and patterns. We looked at examples of these patterns found in mosques in Iran, Morocco, Turkey and even Russia. We took inspiration from a design from the Green Mosque in Turkey to create and paint our own geometric design.
There were a lot of difficult details and shapes to paint but we all did a little bit and we realised that many hands make light work!
We thought that it looked very mysterious when it was finished so we came up with the title ‘Mysteries Beyond’.
