Re: french art/ french folk art

Watch my posts throughout the summer....There may be some good ideas coming
from the "experts" group. I have links to Haitian art and a project inspired
by art of Haiti on my site. There are already many links to Mexican art -
and projects on my site (more ideas to come). I also have a lot about Mali
(French speaking). Many links for Canada. I plan to beef up Spanish
resources for those with a high Hispanic population. I hope your post
generates a lot of ideas. Ideas on French Impressionism are slated for this
summer on IAD - watch for those posts as well.

As you come across ideas over the summer - please post them and I will add
them to IAD resources and ideas pages. I am interested in French Folk art,
too and would love to see what you come up with. Check your Crystal
Productions catalog for videos and books about Mexico - Crizmac too. I
previewed a very nice video about Mexican Culture quite a while ago - my
review is probably in the archives.

Subject: french art/ french folk art

> Next year my school will become a magnet school for foreign languages with
students studying French or Spanish. I will be designing my curriculum to
create a very rich art/cultural experience focusing on countries, art and
artists featuring both languages. Spanish is easy! French is hard! Of
course the Europen/classical French is easy, but I would like to go deeper
than that. Many African countries have French as their official language if
not the native language, also Haiti, Laos, Lebanon, Switzerland, Canada,
etc. I would love tradtional art, artists and especially resources (books,
prints, videos) focusing on art from these other countries.
