This was an extension activity during a unit about Frida Kahlo. I showed examples of talavera tiles from Mexico, as well as images of Kahlo’s kitchen.
square papers, pencils, rulers, 6×6 inch ceramic tiles, china markers, patio paint, spray sealer, school glue, cork paper
- make a practice drawing of the design on paper with pencil- use a ruler to find the center of the square so the design can start in the center
- use a china marker to make the design on the ceramic tile
- add paint
- wipe away any china marker still showing
- spray with sealer
- glue cork paper to the back
