Mayan murals

To finish off our Mayan art project, we have been looking at the difference between Mayan childhood and modern day childhood. The Maya learnt everyday skills from the elders in their families and community, such as weaving and hunting. They depicted these skills in murals so we decided to create a class mural. Using cardboard and paint, we painted our murals showing either Mayan scenes of everyday life or modern day life.
'We used our art books to sketch out a Mayan design, then we painted it into our boxes.' Callum Craske
' I found it fun painting the boxes to make into a tower. We used community to help us complete it as we had to share one box between four of us' Lucy Walsh.
Next week, we are going to learn how to weave a Mayan placemat!
