10:00 a.m. - 11:30 & 12:00 - 1:30 p.m.

This hands-on workshop will be an experience filled with imagination and vibrant color as participants learn the history of Alebrijes, colorful mythical animal spirits created by renowned Mexican artisan Pedro Linares. Each participant will create their own Alebrije by transferring their selected Alebrije design onto heavy gauge aluminum using an embossing technique. No Alebrije would be complete without adding color to bring to life each participant’s personality and creativity! This workshop merges the Milagros (or Exvoto) and Alebrije folk art traditions into a cultural and educational experience for all participants.
