Create a Mobile: Nature and Art

May 19, 2017 - 9:00am
Location: 
Classroom 3

Bring out your creative side by making a mobile inspired by Alexander Calder (American Sculptor, 1923-1976), known as the originator of the mobile.  We will be incorporating shells, beads, and thin-sliced polished stones provided by the Gem and Mineral Lapidary Studio at the Museum (or anything else you might like to bring). With easy, step-by-step instruction you'll leave the class with a beautiful piece of art that you will want to show everyone; and you will also learn a few fun things about some of New Mexico’s rocks and minerals.

This class is geared for adults and older children, ages 12 and above. No prior experience required.  The class fee includes all materials. 

Camille Argeanas, a native New Mexican, is a nationally known wire artist. She has taught regularly at the UNM’s Division of Continuing Education for over twenty years.

Jayne Aubele is a Adult Programs Educator/Geologist at the Museum. Over the years, she has taught adult classes in all aspects of geology.
