Tinga Tinga Painting is a style of painting that originates in Tanzania, East Africa and is still produced my many east African artists today. This style of painting is not only colorful, but grade 2 observed that the colours are like abstract colours. They are not the colours you would expect to see, like red giraffes and colorful turtles.  WE had a lot of fun making our own Tinga Tinga pictures using what we had learnt about drawing. We concentrated on breaking down the shapes and then joining them together. Tinga Tinga animals are long and thin and often have very big eyes.
