Ms. Auriemma's 4th Grade Art Classes 

To celebrate Black History Month, each 4th grade class created their very own Mali Mud Cloth!

Mud Cloths are a tradition in the North African country of Mali that is over 900 years old. Mud Cloths use symbols that hold special meanings and wishes of the artist or community making them. 4th graders used various symbols representing values like community, family, bravery, good fortune, loyalty, and more- some students even made up their own symbols! Each classroom has their own Mud Cloth. Each square you see was carefully made and designed by a student to represent the qualities most important to them. 4th grade's Mud Cloths are a celebration of Mali's rich culture while representing all the wonderful attributes each 4th grade student has, the things they value, and the things they hope to be as they grow!
