This project is based on the work by José Gómez Sicre. We want to guide students in their understanding of the work, José Gómez Sicre and José Clemente Orozco, by utilizing reading portrait strategies and an extension exercise in which they create their own selfie. Students are exposed to many tools that allow them to access and evaluate information and a diverse perspective that are available through art and the cultures it represents. This project integrates a number of techniques that allow students to gain a more in depth understanding of the Latin American culture.
