You and your family are invited to join us every third Saturday of the month for art and literacy activities hosted by the Chicano Humanities and Arts Council (CHAC), a collective of artists dedicated to promoting Chicano/Latino art and culture.

On Saturday, September 21, we will learn about hand-made paper with origins in pre-Hispanic Mexico and how this paper is used for indigenous paintings. Be inspired and create your own paintings on hand-made paper from Mexico.

We invite people of all ages and encourage the entire family to participate. This is a bilingual event, Spanish/English. There is no cost to attend and light refreshments will be provided. No registration is required but program is limited to first 20 participants.
