We were lucky enough to have artists from Oaxaca, Mexico visit MSMS on Tuesday this week! Efraín Fuentes and his wife Silvia Gomez came to the media center at MSMS on Tuesday morning, as part of an educational partnership with Margaritas Restaurants. Pat Picciano served as a translator and presenter on behalf of the artists, and gave multiple presentations to 7th and 8th grade Spanish classes.
Students were captivated by Efraín carving animals from blocks of wood in front of them in real time, while his wife Silvia meticulously painted his creations with bright colors and intricate designs.
Pat did a wonderful job of explaining the village the artists came from, as well as the family dynamic of their artistry. The entire family is involved in the carving/painting process one way or another, and their livelihood depends on it.
Students were able to view many of the animals and “alebrijes” that the artists had brought with them, and were fascinated with the entire process being done “old school” by hand without technology or machines.
Here are just a few photos that capture the educational and cultural experience had by all on Tuesday! Thank you so much to Mrs. Ellen Abrams and the BEF for organizing this priceless presentation that will be remembered for years to come!
The artists will be visiting Margaritas Restaurants in the coming months to sell and showcase their work. View the yellow flyers below in the photo gallery to learn more on how to meet them!
