Although poor Annette I personally sent you so much you probably
hate me. Being half Mexican it is a passion,but I thought of 2 guys
I love.
The Hernandez Brothers,Gilberto and Jaime. They are the proud owners
of "Love and Rockets" a fab Adult theme Comic book. They have
finished and are now doing other projects. Still look up the links I
sent you.
Of course Rivera,Siqueros,and Khalo(one of my faves) but the father
of Mexico is Rufino Tamayo. I also love Miro and Picasso,but
searching the links for more contemporary artists is a must. I think
you want to give the students a well rounded view of all Hispanic
artist from as many mediums as possible. There are people on this
list from other countries
who may want to contribute also. Also a good balance is working with
native crafts and possibly getting craft/artists in your community
to come in and demonstrate or show you their work is beneficial.
If you are doing "Los Dias de muertos" (The day of the dead),check
"Days of the Dead",by Kathryn Lasky ,and "Day of the Dead" by Diane
Hoyt-Goldsmith. These books follow 2 families during their
and have great pictures. This Nov.2nd(it is celebrated between
through Nov.2nd) I will be celebrating my sister's life with my kids
and husband. We will be making Sugar skulls and masks. We will be
making an Ofrenda in her (and others) honor.
I can't put accents in. I've done it before but have forgotten how.
