Art In A Suitcase

Art & Cultural Studies - Land of the Llamas


What is life like over two miles up? This suitcase features the geography, history, people and animals of the Andes Mountains in South America. The story starts with the children of the sun, the gold-rich Incas. Today their descendants still live high in the Andes. How do their bodies adapt? How do they farm, and what do they eat? The animals of the Andes, the llama, alpaca, guanaco, vicuna, guinea pig, chinchilla and condor are introduced.

The program concludes with a fabulous array of native folk art from Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru and a mural project.

Ages kindergarten and up.
