Adult Class

Ventura and Norberto Fabian, Instructors

Learn how to paint Zapotec design motifs with visiting artists from Oaxaca, Mexico. The father-son team—Ventura and Norberto Fabian—continue the tradition of creating hand-carved and hand-painted wooden figures known as alebrijes. This folk art is rooted in traditional rural village life and is one of Mexico’s most popular crafts. Participants will select an original small figure to paint that they can take home. The class will be taught in Spanish with translation to English.

Adult Class. $40 Members/$50 nonmembers. Includes museum admission and all materials.

Space is limited. Register by November 7 at 5:00 pm.
