Punched Tin Window Hangings

In this unit students learned about the art and craft of punched tin and worked in the style of Mexican and Central American artists. Punched tin art is usually used in home decor like lanterns, frames and ornaments and can be found in most import stores. Tin and aluminum are popular materials for artisans to work with because of their versatility and availability. Students used tools to pierce, emboss and cut the craft weight aluminum and created beautiful window hangings.

    I like the individualistic nature of this project. Most of the punched tin art that I am familiar with is very insouciant.
