Making Africa

Say the word “French,” and for many of us, visions of chocolate crepes and the Eiffel Tower come to mind. But did you know that Africa has 31 French speaking countries that includes approximately 115 million people?

French students in Mme. Orsini’s classes studied African proverbs that were then translated into wearable art made in the Steam Lab! Check out her lesson outline here.

French students then took a field trip the High Museum’s Making Africa exhibition and ate lunch at the French restaurant Anis. Great work!!
