We are excited to share about the collaboration with El Camino Real Academy Santa Fe  Art Department and Museum of International Folk Art as part of our Museum-School Partnerships. This year, we focused on the exhibit La Cartonería Mexicana, students learned about paper mache and celebrations associated with this art form. Two sixth-grade classes had the opportunity to meet Dagwood Reeves, an Albuquerque-based artist to learn about his artistic practice and process. Students also created their own sculptures and masks using paper and paste. 

The students’ artwork will be showed case in a collaborative exhibit at the museum. We encourage you to come see our young artists’ artwork. The exhibition will be on view from March 20th through the 31st in the museum atrium.
