Tortillas witha Twist

  1. 1. Tortillas With A Twist Mary Cavazos Lena Rodriguez Grand Prairie Independent School District
  2. 2. Tortillas With a Twist  Objectives: In this project students will learn about the role of the tortilla in Hispanic culture and the art of and technique of artist Joe Bravo.
  3. 3. The Role of the Tortilla  The tortillas are a major part of the Hispanic culture and diet.  They are used for tacos, enchiladas, flautas and fried for nachos. Tortillas are commonly used as eating utensils, i.e. as a plate in a tostada, holding in food as in wraps and burritos, and as a “scoop” for beans, rice, meats and much more.  They are found at festivals, celebrations and even enjoyed at restaurants.
  4. 4. About Joe Bravo  In this project, students will study the artwork of Joe Bravo. Bravo’s tortillas act as the canvas for his amazing paintings. He uses every aspect of the tortilla in a creative and unique approach, turning cooked marks into eyes and ridges into snakes.
  5. 5. Tortilla Books  Theis a collection of Childrens books that can encourage both reading and learning about the tortilla.
  6. 6. Lesson Preparation  It is important that you introduce this project to the students using the historical references of the tortilla and where tortillas might be seen in our world today.  MAKE CONNECTIONS about the PAST and PRESENT  Introduce the artist aspect with examples of Joe Bravo’s work. You can use the images through this Power Point, or at Joe Bravo’s website. http://www.joebravo.net
  7. 7. Tortilla Preparation  You can use the oven, stove or flat griddle to cook the tortilla.  Once cooked, the tortillas are very brittle and fragile so you need to coat both sides with acrylic varnish. I prefer the Liquitex brand which can be found through most art supply stores and catalogs. The varnish also makes the tortilla pliable and will resist breaking so easily.  Afterthe varnish dries, they are ready for painting.  The tortilla should be hard, almost leather like.
  8. 8. Lesson Plan  GRADE LEVELS Kindergarten thru 12th  TEKS CONNECTIONS See the Project Summary and TEKS Connections Page Social Studies – Native American or Hispanic Culture  TIME PERIOD This part of the project will vary depending on the material and lesson preparation and how much you get into studying the culture. For my class it took 4 – 50 minute classes.
  9. 9. Lesson Plan  MATERIALS corn/flour tortillas paintbrushes 1 cup of water acrylic paints sharpie/permanent marker  KEY CONCEPTS/VOCABULARY Tortilla, Texture, Line, Shape, Form, Color, Value and other words that might be associated with the culture being studied
  10. 10. Lesson Plan  PROCEDURE 1. After the tortillas have been prepared for the project, hand out 1 tortilla to each student. You could also alter this project by have the students complete it in pairs. 2. Have students notice the texture and shape of the tortilla. Some tortillas will have air pockets or will be cooked in different places. This will either be a challenge or advantage to their design. 3. Using a permanent marker, students can draw on the tortilla. Be cautious as this will leave little room for error.
  11. 11. Lesson Plan  PROCEDURE 4. As the students are creating their design, encourage them to push their idea farther and think of the culture that they are showing on their tortilla. 5. When students have completed drawing their design, they can use acrylic paint to color in their pictures.
  12. 12. Lesson Plan  PROCEDURE 6. After all of the areas are painted allow the tortilla to dry.
  13. 13. Lesson Plan MODIFICATIONS This project can be modified in several ways…  encourage students to create abstract patterns that they might see in this culture.  allow students extra time to work on the project.  assist students in drawing their design onto the tortilla.
