Inspiration for Creating a Personal Ofrenda – El Colegio, Phase 3

After their field trip to the museum last week, we visited with students at El Colegio to find out what they discovered that interested them. It took a little coaxing, but eventually students shared some of the highlights from their visit. It turns out, their interests are quite varied. Below is a selection of works of art they referenced – some for visual appeal, others for symbolism, and yet others for cultural relevance. They’ve taken this inspiration back to the classroom, where they are crafting their personal ofrendas to honor someone significant to them.

Click on any of the images for more information about the work of art.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Visit the Young People’s Ofrendas exhibition at the museum beginning later this month, or check back here on the blog to see the students’ finished ofrendas and see if you can find where these sources of inspiration make their way into the students’ artwork.
