Mayan Traditional Wall hangings

Year 5 have had a creative end to their Maya topic as they have created their own traditional wall hangings! After taking inspiration from the art of Dan Fenelon (an artist who based his work on Maya patterns), the children have worked in teams during the artistic design process. Beginning by creating their own designs, the children used adhesive foil and matchsticks to create a relief on their printing plates to bring their patterns to life! Unsurprisingly, their favourite part was using ink and rollers to print their patterns - seeing their own designs become a reality! The final step involved adding in some extra intricate detail using our acrylic pens. The pictures of the final result speak for themselves!
