For Educators

Teachers are welcome to download these lesson plans, which use art to enrich the curriculum. They demonstrate how you can integrate multicultural and human rights education into your classes.

Curators are available to give slide or film presentations, or participate in panel discussions about these contemporary Mayan artists, and the current problems facing indigenous women and men in Guatemala.
