Andell Family Sundays—Animal Avatars
Are you a parrot, leaf-nosed bat, or a jaguar? Discover your own animal avatar in the exhibition The Ancient Maya World: Masterworks from the Permanent Collection.
You can make your own Maya-inspired art in the following artist workshops:
Mayan animal book with artist Marianne Sadowski
Inspired by animal iconography, families will learn about animals from different Mayan regions and create an accordion zoo book.
Clay the Maya way with artist Marylene Camacho
Families will learn to sculpt and decorate clay vessels with their own images based on Mayan animal iconography.
Toddler tarp with artist Joe Pelayo
Artists five years old and younger will make their own headdresses based on images of Mayan bats and jaguars.
Art cart with artists Beatriz Jaramillo and Robert Morse
Sketching an artwork is one of the best ways to really see it. And, it is a great activity for the whole family to do together!
