FESTIVALART – Miracles Workshop: Decorating Hearts, Crosses, and Hands presented by the Mississippi Latinx Art Association

04 June 2024, 17:00 - 04 June 2024, 19:00
MS United States

This workshop is a creative exploration that invites participants to delve into the rich tapestry of Mexican folk traditions. Participants will be working iconic symbols within Mexican culture, decorating them using an array of charms traditionally regarded as “milagros” or miracles in Mexico. The process of adorning the wooden crosses, hearts, and hands with these charms becomes a personal and communal act of storytelling, weaving together elements of faith, culture, and individual narratives. The workshop aims to foster a sense of community, as participants share their stories and interpretations through the art they create, offering both a glimpse into Mexican traditions and the opportunity to craft meaningful, personalized artworks.
