Latin American Visual Art: A Pre-Collegiate Teaching Unit. Grades Six to Twelve.
Stanford Univ., CA. Stanford Program on International and Cross Cultural Education.
The work of 20th century Latin American artists is featured in this curriculum, which is intended for use with students in grades 6 to 12. These materials are designed to introduce the arts into the social studies curriculum, and to show Latin American artists to be as intellectually and aesthetically sophisticated as their European and North American counterparts. In addition to an introduction and background materials for the teacher, this unit features five lessons: (1) Latin American visual art; (2) Main themes in Latin American art; (3) Ways in which Latin American artists portray nature; (4) Ways in which Latin American artists portray dissent; and (5) Ways in which Latin American painters and sculptors portray structure. This unit also includes an activity--Make a Hexahexaflexagon; a reading--"I Am Painter: Jose Chavez Morado," and three appendices: (1) List of Latin American artists (by date of birth); (2) List of Latin American artists (by country) with a pronunciation guide to Spanish and Portuguese; and (3) Northern California Bay Area resources on Latin American art and artists.
