Michael Menchaca: Mesoamerican Codices
About This Lesson
In this lesson we will be acquainted with the Mesoamerican culture. Just like children’s books, Mesoamerican Codices told stories using imagery and so does Michael Menchaca’s artwork. Students will be creating their own codice using a variety of stickers on transparent film. Exploring color, pattern, and repetition students will develop and illustrate their own imagery with references to multiple codices. Creativity will be nourished as students develop their own characters and stories.
