Mexican Art & Culture

Front Cover
Capstone Classroom, Aug 4, 2005 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 56 pages
How is the Day of the Dead celebrated? What effect did politics have on twentieth-century painting? How do you weave with a backstrap loom? Arts and crafts offer a window into Mexican culture, reflecting its history, technology, beliefs, and every-day life. Every piece of Mexican art tells us something about the environment and the culture it was developed in, so that we can see how and why people make their art.
