Art Making: Try this at home!

April 6, 2019

In April 2019, we made lemonade out of lemons in the Art Museum. Not real lemonade, because food and drink aren’t allowed in the Museum!

We were expecting construction, and to keep the art safe, it had to be put in storage. We took the families participating in our Saturday program, Vamos al Museo into the Museum to look at blank walls. Crazy right?!  It turned in to one of our favorite art making experiences during this program. Our source for art making inspiration were the wall labels that accompany the art, written by our curators  which often include statements from the artists. Art makers from age 2 – 80 years old participated.

Click HERE and find three wall labels from popular art pieces in the museum. What clues do these labels give you about the art?

We hope artists of all ages will participate by creating art inspired by this text. Please use what ever you have at home. Post your art and tag us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter @nhccnm #nhccnmart or snap a pic and email to elenad.baca@state.nm.us Include the name and age of the artist. All ages, experience and styles are encouraged.

We will repost your creations on our social media platforms and reveal what the pieces in the collection look like soon, so check back! No google searches, only imagination required!
