The Second Graders created bark paintings inspired by the Nahau Native American tribe from Mexico. They studied the culture to prepare themelves for their paintings. The students drew from observation with pictures of animals from Mexico that I provided. They used their drawing as the emphasis for their bark paintings. Before they drew their animals they had to prepare the paper to make it look like bark. They crumbled the paper and painted it with watered down black tempera paint. They painted their animals with tempera paint after they drew them. Finally, they painted a pattern in the background. Great Work!
