Amate Painting.

Thankyou Patty of Deep Space Sparkle fame - For inspiring me with your ornate bark paintings. The kids just loved this activity and led me on an incredible journey discovering Mexican paper crafts. My husband brought home from the US a couple of original Amate paintings and we researched on the internet lots of images for the students to use.
Here are four artworks the kids created. To finish our works off we embellished the paintings with Faber Castell opaque pens- In the United States they are called colour burst paint pens.

  1. I'm just starting amate bark painting myself with 3rd grade. What age group did you do these with? Love how the space is filled with color and plants and animals!
