Practice your observation skills to make a beautiful painting! In this class students will learn about Mexican/French artist Jean Charlot’s painting Chichen Itzá (Relieve de Chichen Itzá), an important artwork that documents a relief from a pyramid at Chichen Itzá. After better understanding this piece students will use their own narratives as inspiration for a painting, while practicing basic painting skills.
