BL2 Monthly Creative Arts: Amate Paintings

In the Monthly Creative Art Series, parent and child will explore a variety of new themes, materials, and projects during each monthly session. Young artists will learn the best practices for handling tools and materials while exploring their creativity and building their problem-solving skills.

During Amate Painting, you’ll learn about the Amate (bark paper) paintings have been used for centuries in Mexico to communicate, keep records, and depict indigenous life in Mexico. Come paint with us as we try to replicate this colorful worldly art.
