5th Grade Mexican Bark Paintings
What did we do? We looked at different Mexican bark paintings. Then we chose an animal that showed movement to draw, and surrounded the animal with different plants. We created a pattern border, and used bright, imaginative colors to paint our drawings. Our last step was to outline all of our shapes with a black marker.
What did we learn? We learned how to draw an animal that showed action or movement. We learned how to fill our page and use imaginary colors. We also learned how to use pattern and texture to add interest to our paintings.
