Artists, historians and art historians!

Teacher assists student with art project

On Tuesday, sixth-graders at Albany International Center created intricate artistic designs inspired by their social-studies lessons about the Mali Empire of West Africa.

The young art historians are students of resident teacher Ebi Onwe and mentor teacher Dylon Peertamsingh. They studied traditional mud cloth artwork of Mali and painted their own versions on squares of cardboard that will later be compiled into a “quilt” to be displayed in their classroom.

Another great interdisciplinary lesson at our international school!

You can see a Facebook photo album from the lesson. (You don't need a Facebook account to see the photos linked in the highlighted text. A window may appear that says, "To see more from Albany City Schools on Facebook, log on or create an account,” but you can dismiss it by clicking “not now.”)
