Adult Art Workshop: Mexican Amate Painting

FREE Adult Art Workshop Sunday, June 27!

Workshop Description

In this 3 hour, online workshop, participants will explore the traditional Mexican folk art of amate paintings. This artistic practice dates back to Mesoamerican times! Many Aztec codices were made on amate paper. Amate paintings traditionally feature native plants and animals or scenes of everyday life. Explore nature’s bright, vivid imagery through this unique art-making process and create your own masterpiece on traditional bark paper. No previous skills or experience required.

All supplies will be included and mailed to participants the week prior to the workshop.

Registration deadline: June 18 by 5:00 p.m.
