Musings about the importance of art and art education

Latin American Art Ideas

While I was packing up my classroom in late June I decided to take home a few old books that I had stuck on a bookshelf that had been in my room before I even got there. One of the books I took you can't even buy anymore. Its from 1976, and its based on Latin American Art. All in all, it's a pretty good book and has about a dozen good art project ideas for all grade ranges. Here are a few ideas I found from it.
