Fourth-8th graders have been working on Art to Remember- this is their opportunity to explore and experiment with creating anything of their choice. I helped them select what medium and techniques would help them achieve their goals. Students felt excited and a sense of ownership with these projects!
After finishing Art to Remember, students have been making relief prints in the style of Jose Guadalupe Posada
Students have been recreating some of Posada’s calaveras – in this case, skulls that are humanized and used to remember or tell social stories. This project complements the other dia de los muertos celebrations happening around the Summit this month.
