Fourth graders are completing a unit on art from Mexico and Central America. We looked at Aztec suns and Native American moon designs for our inspiration on the circle weavings. We chose a color scheme for our sun or moon - warm, cool, neutral, analogous, monochromatic - and began our weaving on our paper looms. For the background, we chose a day or night sky and filled the page with paper mosaic pieces.
