The IMAS continues its series of adult folk art workshops this March with a dive into the museum’s Mexican & Latin American Folk Art Collection. This popular workshop series has included creating a tin skeleton, working with clay, and exploring basketry, offering engaging workshops for adults looking to learn more about the museum’s collection and gain hands-on exposure to new art forms. Participants get inspired with a private viewing of select objects from the collection, followed by traditional artmaking.
On March 12 workshop participants will discover the Olinalá craftwork made from the Linaloe tree and native to Olinalá, Guerrero, Mexico. Participants will paint a wooden box in the Olinalá style. This class is taught by local artist Edgar Cortez.
Registration includes admission so participants may visit the museum after the workshop. Spaces are limited and advanced registration is encouraged. The cost is $15 per Participant and discounted at $10 for IMAS Members. Visit the membership page to learn more about member benefits and to purchase or renew your membership today.
