Latin American art is the creative traditional art that developed in a different culture in America after the people in the area-encountered colonialist and gained some experience from them. The art originated from a different local culture that occupied the America even before the colonization. Each of the native society in the America developed a stylish, inventive control due to the influence of the religion and spiritual anxiety. The work of art that they did before the colonization is referred to as the pre-Columbian art. The combination of American culture and the colonialist culture has emerged to a unique and strong custom. The early history of Latin America tells more of the famous people, right places, and significant procedures. There two different society, Pueblo and Cherokee that are fame in the Latin American art that I describe below.
The two cultures had similarity that they would change natural clay into very attractive work of art. Both cultures dealt with the pottery work in their art work, and eventually improved their art after the colonization. The both cultures could also make different material using clay in their work of art. Both the Cherokee culture and Pueblo culture finish their work by use of decoration.
The three major differences between the Cherokee culture and Pueblo culture is as follows.
The early portly work of the people of Pueblo used the basket as a support in their work while the people of Cherokee made the baskets.

They used the same core competencies of pottery even after colonization while the people of Cherokee adopted the culture of colonialism after the colonization.
In Pueblo the decoration of the good produced was made using designs like water serpent, feathers, life art forms, and simple patterns while in Cherokee they used beads and different colors to decorate.
The first culture is from ethnic group of Cherokee that had a great art that would turn material from nature like river cane, wood, and clay into attractive work of art. Their skill improved by time and they were now good and perfect in their work; they could make different arts as follows.
Basketry; The process of weaving the flexible material into the basket of another similar form.
Stone carving, which is an ancient process of shaping stone to a usable material.
Woodcarving is a form of working wood using a cutting tool to come up with a helpful product to a man.
Bead working, the art or craft of attaching beads to one another.
Making traditional masks that were used in custom events.
The beads were prepared using shells and bones of the birds and later on after alive of the European, they started using tiny glass to make both the beads and the baskets. This was a successful survival to the people of Cherokee since they could use the natural glass to make the goods and later sell them to the tourist and make a great profit foe survival. They could also use the de siccated barriers and gray corn from India to produce beads.
They also had the art of clothing in which they used the teeth, bones, and scrape of an undomesticated creature to decorate them and make them attractive to the tourist. One of the arts was the art of the Indian bead shirt; the white beads were used at the boundaries of the garment and the triangular flowering drawing with a line of beaded curves.
The second culture if the Pueblo society that also dealt with the art of pottery making, in their work they gave the detailed on black or black and red natural and design on white or cream white setting. The artist used the sparkling golden or brown clay material to making ceramic objects.
The early portly work of the people of Pueblo used the basket as a support in their work, of which could observe a significant different when soft clay is used. In their production, clay is excavated from sources from the different society, it is the waterlogged, and unsoiled. They could then place the objects together and surround them with fire so that to make the surface of the port shiny. The artists could use the modern elements to decorate the objects. Which later on finish the surface by scraping, dabbing and buffing. They finally add the art design by using slips, ordinary paint and creative use of clay (Latin American Ar, 88).
The enormous mixture of beautiful and modern artworks in all society in Latin American art have lasted for a length of the period, and it varies in external and internal demands. The development of their painting carving and basket making changes depending on the situation and the type of continuation of each culture(Latin American Art, 57). The reason that made the difference culture in the America to continues with their Latin America art is that they could often move from place to place to follow the wildlife and to search ripe wild plant. They could always move to different hurting groups exploring the nature.
