Talavera Tiles

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

  1. 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
  2. use a china marker to make the design on the ceramic tile
  3. add paint
  4. wipe away any china marker still showing
  5. spray with sealer
  6. glue cork paper to the back
