Latino Artist to Share - Soraida Martinez -and school sites
- Dear Art Educators,
World list - now that I know there are many USA folks - I will post more
artists updates - and school updates to the world list. I would like artists
from around the world, too. I am now getting permission FIRST for you to
show images in a PowerPoint to your students before linking the site.
I would like to introduce you to the work of Soraida
Soraida Martinez - Latino artist of Puerto Rican
heritage - known as the creator of "Verdadism", a form
of hard-edge abstraction in which paintings are
juxtaposed with social commentaries. Many women's
issues - and about minorities. Must see site.
I have her linked on American Art -
Mexican/Hispanic/Latino Art -
and IAD Artists page
If any of you would like Verdadism books, Soraida can
arrange for you to get them at an educational discount
rate. Do not hesitate to contact her.
Also - there were three new Oregon School sites added
to Art Teacher web pages.
Rosemont Middle School
Lakeridge High School
Gladstone HIgh School:
One middle School -- and two high school. These are
also listed on IAD Art Departments. Take a look when
you have time. Many great ideas!
I am "all ears" for more School Art Sites. I will link up all you send on
IAD Art Departments.
