Have you seen colorful folk art from Mexico? Kids will be delighted to try their hand at these colorful and quirky patterns similar to carvings from Oaxaca.
Woodcarvings by the Zapotec Indians of Oaxaca, Mexico, can be real or whimsical creatures. They are adorned with bright paints applied in detailed patterns.
To create your own interpretation of Oaxacan carvings, fold black construction paper in half. On one side, use Crayola® Metallic Colored Pencils and Metallic FX Crayons to draw an animal with the fold as its back or top.
Cut it out with Crayola Scissors, leaving the fold intact.
Use the markers to decorate your creation. Fill both sides of the paper with detailed, patterned drawings. Use many bright, cheerful colors.
Open your animal so it stands up on its own.
