*CANCELED* Handmade Coloring Books

Saturday, September 18, 2021
12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
$100 Museum Members, $110 non-members (includes all materials)

SEPTEMBER 18—Saturday, 12–5pm
Registration deadline: September 10

In this small-group/in-person workshop, enjoy the process of creating a handmade coloring book for yourself or others. Work together with students in the workshop to create coloring sheets inspired by organic lines from the human body and from edible and medicinal plants native to the Americas. Topics like the reciprocity between humans and Mother Nature are key in guiding linework and reflecting on this deep connection.

Instructor Byron Tenesaca Guaman is a visual artist and bilingual educator born in an ancestral community in the Andes mountain region of Ecuador to a family of basket weavers and agriculturists. After graduating from Western Carolina University, he served as artist-in-residence at The Bascom in Highlands, NC and was one of 50 artists selected for the Museum’s inaugural exhibition Appalachia Now! An Interdisciplinary Survey of Contemporary Art in Southern Appalachia. His artworks in various media document, layer, and weave memories, culture, and history from the Andes and Appalachian Mountains together.
