Mexican American Family Stories through Art

Student activity collection analyzing the work of two very different Mexican American artists, identifying aspects of culture and exploring expressions about Latino experiences in art. Included in this collection, are five paintings highlighting Latino families, paired with observation and analysis questions and interviews with the artists, Carmen Lomas Garza and Jesse Treviño, as well as podcast analyses of the paintings from the museum's director. As a supplement, students could read a book by Garza depicting her childhood memories of growing up in a traditional Mexican American community, or lead a discussion comparing this artwork with other images of Latino families. #ethnicstudies

With his vivid presence as a performer, Ty Defoe recounts an eloquent story of life though movement, music, and words rooted in his Oneida and Ojibwe heritage.

ABC’s of Percussion with Uncle Devin

Uncle Devin uses different musical instruments, along with his award-winning book, “The ABC’s of Percussion with Music CD,” to help students construct and demonstrate an understanding of how the sounds made from percussion instruments were used to communicate long before the telephone, computer, email, and other modern forms of communication.  Ausiwnces connect the sounds and rhythm of percussion instruments with the three “r”s—with Uncle Devin as the guide. Presented by Discovery Theater--a pan-institutional museum theater dedicated to bringing theatre to young audiences and general visitors on and off the Mall since 1969.

What is art?

This collection is connected to an introductory lesson for my Humanities 2 class, which looks at art, music, philosophy, dance, architecture, and other disciplines from the Baroque period through the present. Because much of the art of this time challenged the establishment, I want to start the course by asking students to think about what art is in their opinions and from culture's perspective.
