Miz Art ~ Maria Martinez

This week's Miz Art is about the artist Maria Martinez or San Ildefonso. I want you to do a little research on the website www.mariapottery.com and answer the following questions:

1. Where was Maria Martinez born?

2. When was she born (or thought to be born) and what year did she die?

3. Who painted her pottery (there is more than one person)?

4. What technique did Marie use to create her pots?

5. Fill in this sentence: Wood and ___________________ are piled around an _____________, upon which the pottery has been carefully stacked.

6. What does this website say about life in Maria's village? What was the community like? What did they value?
