For this unit students learned about the ancient tradition of Indonesian Batiks. Students created artwork that transferred to cloth using gel glue. When the glue dried students then used only their primary colored watered down acrylics to paint upon the cloth revealing the dried glue as a resist to the color. Upon completion students then created patterned frames for their Batiks.
