Product Description
The art project “Flower Crosses — A Mexican Folk Art Form” can either be used to demonstrate Mexican Folk Art or used in conjunction with a religious observance, if your school allows such observances. These occasions could be Easter or any holy day associated with Christ or the Virgin Mary. The end result will be a fanciful and colorful plaque that can be displayed in the school or taken home as a wall decoration. The Flower Crosses in this art project are made up of five layers of card stock and one piece of heavier cardboard, such as tag board. Using these layers gives the project a dimensional look. Depending on teacher resources, the crosses can be made more intricate by adding glittery accents such as sequins, rhinestones or other plastic gems found at craft stores. Included in the unit are printable copies of holy cards, flower patterns, cross shapes and a slide show that displays samples of Mexican Folk Art crosses. All documents are loaded as PDFs while the slide show is available in both Apple Keynote and Microsoft PowerPoint.
