Making Whistles From Clay. When we finished them, several students graciously agreed to play the whistle they'd made in this video...enjoy.
1.) Students tore the edges of the paper to make it resemble bark.
This lesson was inspired by Amate Bark Paintings created in Mexico. In Mexico, the paper for these paintings is handmade using the bark of the paper mulberry tree. The paper is then used by neighboring artists to create paintings that celebrate life; imaginary animals and birds, elaborate plants, lovely borders are common.
2.) Sketching out ideas with pencil.
3.) Outlining with black pen.
4.) Painting with bright colors.

Students then created their own landscape paintings inspired by Grandma Moses.
