Join us as we explore the concept of Wabi Sabi; a less-is-more mindset, seeking simplicity, naturalness, and spontaneity through a read aloud of Wabi Sabi by Mark Reibstein.  Families will have the opportunity to view William Ismael’s exhibition Wholeness and Fragmentation to gain understanding of how art materials interact with each other and their background.  Then join us in the youth classroom to create your own abstract paintings by experimenting with various watercolor techniques, painting on foil, or dipping string into paint and making pulled string art.

Join us as we celebrate creative reuse with the 24th annual Junque Arte Exhibition!
