Along with Picasso, Kahlo and Rivera, some other Hispanic artists my students
study are El Greco (born in Greece, but did the majority of his work in
Toledo, Spain), Goya, Dali, Miro, Maria Martinez (Pueblo Indian - potter), and
the marvelous biomorphic architect, Antonio Gaudi.

Something else you might really want to consider is the great "Days of the
Dead" activities shared with the group by Nancy Walkup, from the North Texas
Institute of the Arts, who developed and wrote much of the Biggers and Moroles
exhibitions for ArtsEdNet.

Following Nancy's suggestions, my students and I have made offrendas to 3
artists the past 2 years around Halloween and have a big "feast" as close to
November 1st as possible. They love it and learn a lot. I have photos of the
offrendas if you are interested in seeing those. I JUST got a scanner and
could send them to you in the next couple of weeks as I experiement if you are

Hope this helps!

I am sending Annette and attached file with all the information and worksheets
I have on the above artists and Nancy's information on Days of the Dead
activities and will send it to any other individuals who are interested.
