Ludlow-Taylor is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. Students are learning about countries with Spanish culture and connections in art class. They also are identifying their respective countries in relation to the US with Latin American flag illustrations and Lucia liner wrestling masks. Students were tasked with naming and creating their characters and naming them in Spanish.
Students are also working on traditional indigenous yarn weaving from western Mexico. The Ojo de Dios, or God's eye, is a cultural symbol which signifies the power of seeing and understanding that which is unknown and unknowable. The four points represent the mystery of the elemental processes--earth, fire, air, and water. The craft honors culture, tradition, and art of the indigenous peoples of Latin America.
