Make Art Monday for May is Yarn Painting

On Monday May 21st, join us at 125 N. Main St. in North Wales to learn about and make a Yarn Painting. What is Yarn Painting? Well, the Huichol people live in west-central Mexico. They are famous for creating designs with yarn. Called Nearika, this artwork was originally made for religious purposes. Often the yarn represented a legend important to the Huichol people, such as the origin of maize. Now artists also make yarn paintings as folk art. Their motifs include animals, people, and symbols of Huichol history. Join us on May 21 so that you can make your own Nearika.


Make Art Mondays are two hours of fun and art making in a relaxed environment. Each month we make a different art piece.We provide the supplies, you supply the imagination. These events are also kid friendly , but we ask that a parent or guardian also take part in the fun. All we ask is that you pay $5.00 per person, to help us keep the lights on.

It is even more fun when you bring a friend. So join us in May for Yarn Painting and then come back in June when we will be making collages.
