The National Hispanic Cultural Center and the UNM Latin American & Iberian Institute are coming together once again to provide another in-depth and profound look at Latin America history, art and experience via special events tailored for New Mexico teachers. This pair of workshops will focus on demonstrations and resources designed to bring the history of Chile and the arpillera art form alive in classrooms! Teachers from grades 4-12 will benefit most from this content, though all are welcome to attend.
This workshop will start with a private tour of the NHCC art museum, led by NHCC Education Director Dr. Shelle Sánchez, to provide a face-to-face experience of the artwork of the exhibition Stitching Resistance: The History of Chilean Arpilleras. After the tour, we'll provide different curriculum perspectives for how to bring this history and art into the classroom.
