The Teacher
A wonderful gift for any teacher that has really made an impact on a child's life!  

NOTES: For the third time that day, the Principle of the Sacred Heart school went to make a little visit to the class of Miss Liliana Pérez, the most attractive teacher at the school. Once again the students stood up and greeted the Principal in loud voices, Good morning Mr. Principal. Alright, alright, that is enough, he said, a little embarrassed. Well…..I was just passing down the hall and I thought you might need something. Do you need some chalk, a thumbtack, a little tube of glue?. No thank you … it is very nice of you, answered the young woman blushing a little. Fine, if you need the slightest little thing Miss Liliana, do not hesitate to call me, OK? said the Principal leaving the classroom. Goodbye Mr. Principal! cried the students as they jumped up having let some books drop on the floor. Fine, fine, OK, OK….let’s stop with the greetings! said the Principal a little flustered as he disappeared into the hall.

Guillermo Forchino bio

From the early 1980's, Guillermo Forchino experiments with various materials to create works of art in volume. This research began at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Rosario, Argentina and then continued with three years of studies in art restoration and conservation at the Sorbonne University in Paris, France. During his studies he discovered and mastered classic techniques and materials. After completing his studies in Paris, he returned to Argentina where he directed the Juan B. Castagnino atelier of art restoration for the Museum of Beaux-Arts of Rosario. It was during this period that Forchino began creating figures made from wrapped bands of cloth where the visible parts of the body (head and hands) were made from wax and paper maché colored with natural pigments. From the end of the 1980's, Forchino chose poly resins to create figures and scenes that resemble the world of comic strip and cartoon characters. They are typically unusual and humorous subjects such as a family leaving on vacation in an overloaded car with flat tires or a tired, old American pick-up truck from the 1950's. He has used other modes of transportation such as boats, planes and motorcycles and has even used a bathtub for a military dictator. His characters are always handled with humor and finesse and given a soul. Guillermo Forchino lives and works in Paris in his workshop two steps away from the Pere Lachaise cemetery. The Comic Art of Guillermo Forchino is now available for a larger group of art lovers in the form of limited edition, numbered series. Found only in specially selected stores, each piece is identified by a numbered stamp on the bottom. It comes wrapped in the newspaper "The Forchino Times" along with the autobiography of Forchino and pictures of his collection. A certificate of authenticity completes the package.
