Writing/Essay/Journal
Peter Morales is inspired by ancient Mayan sculptures from his native Guatemala. Describe the art form with which you come into contact most, whether it’s in your house, around your neighborhood, on TV or on the Internet. Remember—this does not have to be visual art, but can be literary or performance. How, if at all, does this art form seep into your daily life?

Activity
Commission your own work of art (poem, sculpture, painting, collage, or any combination) in which you create your own Guardian Figure to protect and encourage you.  Re-work images from your past and incorporate the art form you described above.
