Learn about the Huichol cosmology and how it relates to wellness through the beautiful art of yarn painting with beeswax. Create your own yarn painting while you learn about the different symbols in Huichol art!

The Latino Cultural Arts Center dedicates the Fall to Dia de los Muertos and mental wellness. The theme for Ofrendas 2022 focuses on resilience through storytelling. Personal narratives are a powerful tool in which we can create and communicate who we are as an individual, a family unit, and as a community.

Stories create spaces that tell us how we came to be, where we are heading, and how we hope to grow. The workshops are lead by a team of local artists and educators: Adriana Palacios, Carolyna Espinoza, Cindy Loya, Cipriano Ortega, Jackeline Ruiz and Nancy Viera.
