With each class, I focus on the art of another culture. With 3rd grade, we learn about art from Mexico. we start by learning about the Aztecs and the Mayans. Last we learn about the Mexican “cowboys” and the textile art. On one large construction paper sheet we draw a sombrero and a poncho on another. We paint each item, then we spend a class period embellishing our pieces before cutting them out. The 3rd grade had a blast!
When they were done we cut the pieces out. The kids had so much fun and so did I. Here are the 3rd graders with their finished artwork.
