Loteria has been referenced intermittently within contemporary Chicano art as a distinctly recognizable shared cultural experience. Loteria’s game format is inherently educational due to its descriptive quality and within our proposed project’s context it will gain relevance among participants of diverse cultural backgrounds that have a shared contemporary experience. The Loteria game is perfectly suited for younger children due to its descriptive format, which requires both visual and oral engagement. For more about loteria and the specific images, please see our loteria page.

How to Submit:

1. Select an image from the list of cards and interpret it with your own style and imagination. Your image will be printed in black and white, so please consider high contrast drawing materials/media.

2. Develop a fun rhyme or verse to accompany your image. Here are some examples:

LA PERA (The Pear) “He who waits, despairs.”
