MAKE ART WITH PURPOSE: USE YOUR VOICE PAVILLION
Texas-Mexico Border Landscapes produced in partnership with Oil and Cotton
7310 JUNE RD DALLAS, TX
Participants were invited to draw, collage, and paint with natural dye watercolors to make a unique artwork through the techniques and approaches of Tierra Firme. The public used handmade nets for specimen rubbings and cochineal bugs as paint while together we pondered the relationship between materials and place inspired by the West Texas Border. Participants learned how to make natural dye watercolors from scratch and completed a mixed media artwork that explores West Texas narratives, landscapes, barriers, portals, and science.
