Happy Hispanic Heritage Month! Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. During the next few weeks, PS4 students will participate in read-alouds celebrating Hispanic culture, create artwork inspired by Diego Rivera and attend a Latin Jazz performance highlighting the contributions of Hispanic musicians.
Students will be learning about famous Mexican artist, Diego Rivera. Rivera was born in Guanajuanto, Mexico. People all over the world have heard of him because he changed the meaning of art. Instead of making paintings to hang in museums and galleries, the way so many artists before him had done, Diego Rivera painted murals in public spaces for everyone to see. For Diego, the public wall was the perfect place for him to express his deep respect for both the common people of Mexico and the working class people around the world, and to create an art form that was entirely Mexican. For more information about Diego Rivera, click here or ask a teacher to borrow the book entitled Diego by Jeanette Winter.
