In collaboration with New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) and New York Folklore Society, the museum’s education department presented an afternoon dedicated to celebrating spring through learning traditional paper art techniques from Mexico. Families learned how to tear, twist, and create their own vivid spring bouquet! Workshop instructor Aurelia Fernandez is a Mexican master artisan and participant of the NYFA Folk Artist Development Program, which helps senior members of immigrant communities build professional skills and resources to carry forward their traditional art forms.
