Ages 6 - 8
The Art of Mexico
Jul 5 - 9, 2021
9AM - 3PM
Join this culturally rich workshop where students create and design art projects based on traditional Mexican folk arts including pottery, weaving and paper crafts. While learning some basic Spanish, students look at various examples of artwork from regions in Mexico as well as their historic significance. Students then create their own artworks inspired by “alejibres” which are whimsical wooden toys, “hojalata” or tin artwork, “papel picado” which is a cut paper technique— plus ceramics and more! On Friday we celebrate with a piñata for our friends and families to enjoy.
Rae Lampe is a mixed-media artist and a mural painter. She has a degree in Spanish Bilingual Education. Rae has traveled extensively in Mexico, South and Central America and has taught art in the Roaring Fork Valley for over 24 years. She currently teaches at The Aspen Middle School.
