Mexican craft – Joel Garcia
Create your own paper maché figurine with renowned artist Joel Garcia whose work is featured throughout PMG. Garcia will be traveling from Mexico City to teach this traditional craft to a handful of lucky students. Participants will learn Garcia’s techniques and create their own paper mache project from start to finish during the two-day workshop.
Garcia has been featured in galleries and museums throughout Mexico and the United States, and his creations are among the collections of Philadelphia folk art collectors. Garcia follows the centuries-old tradition of creating paper maché figures that are both ceremonial and decorative. His pieces incorporate a variety of sculpture techniques that include molds, wire armatures, and miniature assemblages.
