Modernist Suncatchers

Take inspiration from Albuquerque’s own modernist plexiglass artist, Hilda Appel Volkin, by making your own suncatcher using clear plastic, tissue paper, popsicle sticks and glue. Then go home and enjoy it in your window 310 days out of the year (or however many sunny days are in your town)!

Mixed-Media Maps

Inspired by Jaune Quick-To-See's "Memory Maps" we will create collaged mixed-media pieces that explore our relationships to story, land, place, and creatures.
