Arts: Making Models with a Purpose

Students will investigate the work of Cuban artist Leandro Gómez Quintero. A former teacher of history and philosophy, he uses cardboard and refuse found on local streets and beaches to create small-scale models of the vintage cars and trucks in his remote city of Baracoa. Students will understand that the process of making art can be playful and will experiment to solve problems while making a miniature model.
