Art

In art we created 3D sculptured Mayan masks.

First we had to decide whether we were going to make a death mask, events mask or battle mask. We sketched our designs then created them using cardboard for the shape and newspaper with papier-mâché to build up our designs. Finally we painted them. We had to use resilience when creating our masks as it was challenging to achieve our designs.

We designed and made a Maya Codex on 'tree bark' We had a go at writing using the Mayan writing system which was made using symbols. It was really tricky as we don't yet know what all of their symbols mean. To create the fig tree bark we used tea bags, PVA glue and brown paint.

We have been studying pictures from Mayan times to find out more about what life was like. We used pastels and charcoal to draw scenes of everyday life. We put out work together to create a class mural.
