Folk Arts in the Home: New Mexican Tinwork.
Gomez, Aurelia; Sullivan, Laura Temple
New Mexican tinwork is a folk art tradition that developed out of Mexican and European silver work. Due to a lack of silver in New Mexico, tin became the material of choice. Rooted in European Hispanic traditions, this contemporary craft is yet another example of the resourceful ingenuity and adaptation that characterizes many New Mexican folk arts. This lesson plan, "Making a Tin Frame," includes objectives, vocabulary terms in English and Spanish, materials, motivation, procedure, evaluation, and extensions and connections. Contains nine references and the names, addresses, and phone numbers for eight tin artists. (MM)
