Product Description
Ancient people, like the Aztecs, knew the importance of the sun in their lives but did not understand what it was. The ancient Aztec religion was highly focused on keeping nature in balance and the sun was a large part of that. This project focuses on balance and symmetrical design. It is definitely one of my favorite lessons from my Mexican Marketplace Thematic Unit.

This mixed media project uses painted paper, oil pastels, tempera paints and painted paper scraps to create an adorable sun inspired by the clay suns sold at many marketplaces in Mexico.

This 6 page pdf includes:

Step by step full-color photo tutorial for the Mexican Sun Art lesson
