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 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.
