The following Saturday, make a mixed-media poster inspired by themes central to Danny Lyon’s photography (visit Gallery 1). Think about non-violent activism, climate change, environmental issues, and civil and human rights. Later in the month, check out world-renowned artist and designer Ramona Sakiestewa’s (Hopi) beautiful modern yet traditional weaving Rose Lake (for Ruth) in the exhibition Indigenous Art, Culture, and Community, and then come make your own vibrant weaving using gorgeous fibrous paper strips. On the final Saturday of the month, they will be making a fun paper art project to celebrate the coming of Spring! Punch out colorful and patterned paper circles and string them together to make a set of beautiful hanging garlands. All ages will enjoy our family art projects. Work on a new project each week.
