Retablo

What You Need:

  • Construction paper
  • Glue stick
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

What You Do:

  1. Discuss with your child how she would like to go about making her retablo. Would she like to tell a story through imagery, or would she prefer to use popular iconography to design the visuals of a retablo?
  2. Have her draw and cut out out the elements of her retablo on construction paper.
  3. On another sheet of construction paper, have her collage and organize her image. If she will be telling a story, or writing a "thank you" to a saint, she can leave room around her image to include text.
  4. Encourage her to carefully glue down her paper design.
  5. Have her write down any text she wishes to include.
  6. Ask her to use markers to add any details to complete her retablo.
