The Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Pittsburgh, and Mexico Lindo, are proud to present a live, virtual carving demonstration and painting workshop with renowned Oaxacan artist, woodcarver Armando Jimenez and his wife, painter Antonia Jimenez Carillo. The workshop will be co-facilitated by Mexico Lindo’s owner, Mexican Folk-Art dealer Lisa DiGioia Nutini.
Each registered participant will receive a small, unfinished, hand carved animal kit, including paints to follow along as we watch Armando and Antonia at work. Armando will discuss the origins of his art form, family history, and answer your questions.
NOTE: Everyone is welcome to join us but please be aware that to receive an Alebrije kit, we can only ship to participants with US-based addresses.
