Exploring the arts

Today we learned about Hispano folk art and how it evolved from using leftover materials to make pieces of art. This was because the San Luis Valley was so isolated. Mr. Rick talked to us about this and then challenged us to make art out of our trash.

See what we made! We also visited Theresa Vigil and learned about the herbs you can collect in the mountains and what they can be used for.

Then after dinner we were given assignments to play specific people who were important to Ft. Garland. We had so much fun dressing up and acting our parts.
