Vivi and Lizzy

These young artists were ready to finish their paintings yesterday so they could start on a new project. Lizzy finished her bald eagle and Vivi finished her kitten. I introduced the artists to their next project – amantes from Mexico. In Mexico these folk art paintings are done on fig tree bark paper. The main subject matters are birds. In the past, in a certain area of Mexico, the people believed that birds protected their homes. The birds were painting in a stylized form – not realistic. Lizzy and Vivi began drawing their birds on some brown paper representing the fig tree bark paper. They both chose to draw an owl.:) P.S. We reviewed the definitions of horizontal, vertical and dimensions.  We also found Mexico on my globe along with the 5 oceans, equator and the N. and S. Hemispheres.
