May 28
Fabric Flags
Get bold! Assemble colorful and patterned pieces of fabric. Cut shapes, stripes, and symbols to invent your own flag.

June 4
Paper Sculptures
Another project inspired by the Papercentric exhibit at the Museum! Make a 3D work of art using colored and patterned pattern paper, cardboard, scissors, tape, and glue...and of course, your imagination. Be sure to check out the whimsical exhibition in Gallery 4!

June 11
Pride Rainbow Banner Flags
Celebrate LGBTQ Pride month and mix your own rainbow. Starting with only primary color (red, yellow and blue) fabric paints, students will mix secondary (orange, green and purple) colors, allowing for a wide variety of unique colors. While mixing a rainbow is the goal, the sky is the limit on what your rainbow looks like!

June 18
Hand Art Mobiles
Create a hanging mobile of collaged hands to celebrate unique people and families using paper tracings, scissors, glue, string, wire and tape. Happy Father's Day!

June 25
Hot Summer Construction Paintings Inspired by Raymond Jonson
Using oversized photos of Albuquerque’s construction zones, neon paints, tape and oil pastels, students will create landscapes that capture the feelings of summer in our city, something so intrinsic to Transcendental painter and UNM professor, Raymond Jonson (1891-1982). Play and abstraction highly recommended!
