Unidad: Las influencias culturales en el arte mexicana (Unit: Cultural Influences in Mexican Art). Dos semanas.
Finere, Neal
This two-week unit, appropriate for bilingual education settings as well as foreign language programs, deals with the three primary cultural influences found in Mexican contemporary art. The multisensory materials, pragmatic focus, and direct creative student involvement are designed to make it a microcosmic, real-life experience. The first part of the unit, in Spanish, deals with artistic expressions that reflect a mixture of various cultural influences. These include international influences in the modern period, Hispanic, French and Arab influences in the colonial period, and indigenous influences in the Precolumbian Period. The second part, in English, covers artistic expression in home furnishings and decorations. These reflect wide variation in materials, pluralistic cultural influences, and multiple levels of sophistication. Each section provides the following: (1) lesson objectives; (2) suggested and recommended activities; and (3) creative project suggestions including the rationale for them, requirements, procedures for the operational classroom experience, and a list of areas from which to choose the project item. The unit includes step-by-step instructions for the teacher, illustrations, and a list of reference materials. (Author/AMH)
