Oaxaca Marionettes with Megan Basaldua
SATURDAY JUNE 23, 2018 | 12 – 3 PM
Travel with us to Oaxaca, Mexico for the day to create alebrije marionettes from recycled materials! Alebrijes are colorfully patterned, never-before-seen creatures that appeared in artists’ dreams and were later carved in wood for remembrance. This is a chance for participants to bring to life their own creations, whether it is an imaginary friend, a creature from a dream, or a new combination of animals you’ve always wanted to see!
Please note: If arriving in a group of 10 or more, please contact us the week prior to your visit by calling 718.956.1819.
Free arts education at Socrates is made possible by generous and long-standing support from our partner ConEdison.
