Second Saturdays at The Latino Cultural Center
Oil and Cotton creates and leads monthly drop-in family art projects that respond to the Latino Cultural Center’s rotating exhibitions and events. Past workshops have included a drum making activity for families attending the opening of American Sabor: Latinos in U.S. Popular Music. Children interpreted traditional rhythms such as Mambo, Samba and Cha Cha into visual patterns to decorate their drums and shaker instruments.
Join us on March 14 and make a Carnival Mask. FREE.
