Warm-Up:

Happy Dia de Los Muertos! Below is Diego Rivera's representation of the day's festivities. Let's do an activity about (ways of) seeing.

Self-Portrait on the Border . . .

An excellent resource for asking questions of an artwork

In-Class:

Concluding John Berger

Today I'll be handing back your midterm self-portraits and diary entries as well as your research questions. Please take care to read over my comments on the latter as they are meant to help you progress with your projects, especially during our visit to the library next class. We have our own Art librarian!

Homework:

Prepare for your research session at the library on Thursday. Decide what you want or need to look up in the art databases and what questions you have for Ms. Martinez about the research process.
