Colorful Foil Fields

Inspired by the Digital UV prints by Thomas Leiblein we will create vibrant ethereal works on foil using sharpie and hand sanitizer.

Mini Murals

Artist and activist Chip Thomas, the Museum's current lobby installation artist, wheat-pastes photography on buildings, walls, and billboards around the Southwest. He also adds text to his murals. In this Family Art Workshop, we will use black & white images and sharpie on scrap wooden panels to create dynamic works of art.

Meet Your Instructors.

Harley Kirschner is a mixed media artist and art instructor. He has a passion for mixed media, incorporating many different techniques into each object he makes. Although his roots are in collage and painting, he has been exploring place-based art for over a decade with students and has created permanent installations on his own. This is where his passion for garden art comes in. In addition to creating magical worlds, Harley has a passion for textiles and is always exploring new techniques to enliven fabric.

Michelle (Shelly) Korte is a multimedia artist—painting, drawing, sculpting, collaging, writing, printmaking, and performing. She is fascinated by the ways in which ecology, industry and ceremony interest - defining the role of humans as animals, consumers, and healers. As a curious traveler and investigator, Shelly has taught and shown her work around the world for over 20 years. As an educator, she also allows art to be a conduit of self-inquiry, expression, and problem solving. She has lived in the Manzano Mountains of Tijeras, NM with her young son since 2014 where she has been growing a creative, communal arts and healing space.
