Celebrate Hispanic Heritage month by studying Mexican folk art, and the legacy of Pedro Linares, creator of the fantastical creatures called "alebrijes" (Ah-lay-BREE-hays) as seen in this playlist:
Pedro Linares and Family https://youtu.be/dmTSY-VozkA
Coco Story Book https://youtu.be/M8F6BnnFWTA
Disney and Alebrijes https://youtu.be/9y_eSCpUqJE
Then, assign this digital, framed canvas on ClassDojo, SeeSaw, or any platform with markup tools for your artists to use color, line, shape, and pattern to create their very own imaginary alebrijes. I have included a teacher sample and K-2 artists' samples in a single .PDF file (25 pages) as well as a a duplicate file of individual .PNG files for flexibility and ease of use!
This is just in time for Hispanic Heritage celebrations and Dia de los muertos! Print the final products as large as 12 x 18 inches in color for a beautiful, cultural display of Mexican folk art! Even the "Cempasuchil" flowers that make up the frame carry cultural significance! https://www.inside-mexico.com/the-legend-of-the-cempasuchil-flower/ Instructions are written in both English and Spanish.
