Mexican Folk Art Paper Mache Lesson

Dear Art Educators,

Mexican Folk Art (Oaxacan animals) was listed on both elementary and middle
school cultures lists... I have updated the lesson plan with an elementary
I have no idea where the images came from as the original IAD plan has been
lost. I am guessing at the grade level based on my own experiences. I have
done them with third grade level at a local Art center. We took two - two
hour sessions (Saturday classes). When I did them with fifth graders it took
five classes for students to complete. I had them write stories (and
illustrate) about their animals while waiting for paper mache to dry.

If my link doesn't work for you - enter through IAD home - Lesson Plans -
Middle School - then click link. Note - Middle School folder is still
loading very slowly for me - I assure you the plan is there.
