When and where the artist was born?
What he/she is famous for?
What is their medium? (Sculpture, painting, murals, architecture, etc)
What influenced the artist?
How has the artist’s work impacted society?
All sentences must be written in Spanish. DO NOT USE A TRANSLATOR OF ANY KIND!
The poster size is to be determined by the student but should be large enough to present to the class and be easily
seen by all.
Be creative! Use color, artwork, photos, drawings, etc. to enhance your poster. Neatness counts! Avoid spelling

the back of the poster also.
