My husband, Hernán, grew up in Lima, Peru. As a result, Peruvian culture and cuisine plays a big role in our lives! Just last weekend, we went to a Peruvian festival in Denver, where performers showcased the traditional marinera dance as chefs grilled cuy (guinea pig) and stewed pots of rice pudding. As I watched the marinera, it occurred to me that I can’t dance to save my life … but I can draw. And thus, this marinera dancer calligraphy drill worksheet was born. I created the calligraphy artwork featured in the worksheet to celebrate Peruvian Independence Day, which is July 28th!
