CLCA & Makers Lab Present: Mexican Tin Art

Mexican Tin ArtJoin Chicano Latino Campus Association & the Makers Lab for a workshop on Mexican tin art.

One of the least known, most versatile, and most beautiful expressions of Mexican folk art is hojalata (tin art work), also known in some parts of Mexico as, lamina  or lata. Since the 1500's, this humble metal has been made more pleasing by being shaped, stamped, punched, painted and cut into a wide variety of decorative and functional artwork.

Come and learn about this art form and create your own expression of Mexican Folk art!

No experience necessary, all materials will be provided. Registration required due to capacity limits.
