Middle School Artists Create Mexican Inspired Tiles

As a celebration of Spanish heritage month this year, BB&N eighth graders examined contemporary expressions of Hispanic culture in Mexican street art. Studying four principal artists, students in Jennifer Ridge's Middle School Spanish class were inspired to create their own wall tiles in the style of a chosen artist.

Utilizing design software to create a digital prototype, the eighth graders then brought their artwork to life in the Middle School maker space, etching into wood with a laser cutter, and building their final creations.
