Hispanic Heritage Month: Teach Your Kids About Hispanic and Latin Art

Hispanic Heritage Month is the perfect time to teach your kids about Hispanic art. Workforce Solutions Rural Capital Area wants to reflect on the influences and contributions of Hispanic and Latin cultural art to our communities.

Hispanic art encompasses a wide range of artistic traditions developed in Mesoamerica, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. The art spans from colonial religious works, woven textiles, abstract expressionist paintings, and contemporary installations.

Here are some activities you can do with your kids to teach them about Hispanic art:

  • Research Hispanic and Latin artists together online, at the library, at a cultural center, or a bookstore to learn how this art impacted art culture.

The influence of these Hispanic and Latin artists has shaped the history of Hispanic and Latin art: Diego Velázquez., Francisco Goya, Romaro Bearden, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, and Frida Kahlo, to name a few.

  • Visit a museum or an art gallery that showcases Hispanic and Latin art pieces.
  • Latin American art in Austin, Texas, the Mexic Arte Museum and the San Antonio Museum of Art in San Antonio, Texas.
  • Create some handmade art pieces inspired by Hispanic and Latin art. Encourage your child to unleash their creativity from what they have seen and learned about Hispanic art by doing fun and easy home art projects using materials such as clay, yarn, beads, or recycled objects.

Make sculptures, crafts, or make paper flowers like Frida Kahlo, paint a self-portrait like Diego Velázquez, or create a collage-like Romaro Bearden.
