Workshop #5 with Santa Barraza

May. 11

May. 11 @ 12:00 pm 3:00 pm

The Museum partnered with local artist Santa Barraza who led the workshop with the facilitation and assistance of our education associate José Martinez. 

Leading a mini mural workshop on large 7’ x 4’ amate (bark) paper sheets the workshop was titles Iconography: A sense of Home. The workshop focused on how Santa has used iconography throughout her entire career; art students at Del Valle High School explored and reflected on how to depict a sense of home using iconography and symbolism collaboratively. Each class created one large mini mural on amate paper and made Milagros out of embossing foil for prayers and manifestations that are unique and personal to them; these will be weaved into the amate murals.
