PowerPoint on the Life of Remedios Varo. Spanish Catalan artist in Mexico.
I use this PPT as a complement to the reading in the AP Spanish book Temas for the Unit on "Belleza y estética" - Las artes visuales.. Beauty and aesthetics - Visual Arts.
However, you don't need to use the reading or be teaching AP Spanish in order to use this PPT in your class.
Includes Bell Ringers, concise biography, short description on the surreal movement and images of my favorite and most famous Remedios Varo paintings.
100% en español. Great for Spanish, History, and Art History classes.
Remedios Varos was a Spanish exhile fleeing the Spanish Civil War. La guerra civil española. She fled to México where she befriended Frida Kahlo and other intellectuals. Her paintings are now worth millions.
I also have a project that I had students complete after showing them this PPT and taking Cornell Notes. It is by far the most creative and beautiful project they've ever worked on.
