The indian art from all latin america has interesting ceramics and reliefs
from their ancient temples. You could do some pattern design, or if you have
young kids they could do coloring of copied worksheets of those designs.

Also the art from South Spain has intricate pattern design found in more
utilitarian objects as an influence from the arabic moors. They could be shown
those examples and taught to imitate those designs. The Flamenco dancers are
just awesome and everything about the danceform is so incredibly
artistic.-Find something there!

Good Luck, Adios companeros!---Maria G
