Art - Mayan Masks.

For our Mayan topic, year 5 looked at why the Maya wore masks and what they represented. In art, we firstly took inspiration from the Maya art style to help us design our own Maya mask. After that, we then applied our sculpture techniques to create our very own 3D mask, which was layered with cardboard, newspaper and then white paper, all glued together with watered down PVA. Finally, we added detail to our sculptures using collage. We added small pieces of paper to cover the whole design ns then added finishing touches with feathers, sequins and ribbon.
